Around the Gazimestan
The two coffins, in the Mausoleum of the Bayraktarlar, of two “flag bearers” of Murad I who died with him during the battle of 15 June 1389. More precisely, it would be the flag bearer (bayraktar in Turkish) and shield bearer (kalkan taşıyıcı) of the sultan, but the tomb is designated as that of the “flag bearers” (bayraktarlar, the plural of bayraktar). But in fact, there is still a mystery as to the identity of the two soldiers buried in the mausoleum. For example, it is not known whether they died in the great battle of Kosovo Polje in 1389, or whether they fell in the other battle of the same name between the Ottomans and their Serb allies and Hungarian and Romanian troops on 17-20 October 1448.
