Discovery of the Tomb of Suleiman the Magnificent in Hungary

Working with a Turko-Hungarian group since 2013, Norbert Pap of the University of Pécs announced the discovery of Turbék, a fortified town and Ottoman pilgrimage site that grew up around the burial site of Suleiman the Magnificent’s internal organs.

Suleiman died in Hungary in 1566 during the siege of Szigetvar, and although his body was returned to Constantinople, his heart and intestines were buried where he died.

Pap and his team think they have found the remains of a building that could be the sultan’s tomb, a small mosque, a dervish monastery, and military barracks—all arranged in a formation that is compatible with a map of the town that dates to 1664.
