Türbe by Damad Ali Pasha in Belgrade .

As Türbe ( Turkish from Arabic تُرْبَة turba “dust”, “earth”, “cemetery”, “mausoleum”) is a term used in the Turkish language to describe a Muslim mausoleum or a burial site .

Important Türben are those of the late Turkish rulers in Istanbul and Bursa ; These are mostly architecturally splendidly decorated buildings with the cenotaph or coffin ( sanduka or tabut ) of the dead inside . The body itself is several meters underground. On the Rose Hill in Budapest is the Gül-Baba-Türbe with sarcophagus , which was built 1543–1548 for the Turkish dervish Gül Baba , who died in 1541 .

The Arabic word qubba ("dome") denotes both mausoleums and buildings in general that are places of worship, but not necessarily the burial place of a Muslim saint. High grave towers with a conical roof based on the Persian model of a gonbad hot in Turkey kümbet .
