Ever since the historical series Dirilis Ertugrul has aired in Pakistan, many have developed an interest in the Ottoman Empire, keen to know more about Ertugrul Gazi and his roots as the chieftain descending from the Kayi tribe.

Located in the land of the Blue mosque, star Adnan Siddiqui too, took to visit Gazi's mausoleum in Sogut — which is a small town in the Bilecik province in Turkey.

All praises for the political figure in history, the Mere Paas Tum Ho actor took to Instagram to document this exhilarating moment from his trip.

Visibly excited, he introduced the resting place of "the man who championed the cause of Islam, wished for a prosperous and safe state for Muslims and non-Muslims alike and whose regime was based on the tenets of justice and fair play."

"I had expected a grand monument to celebrate the great Ertuğrul, man of commanding authority, and a greater legacy — and here was a tomb that spoke volumes of the chief’s life but didn’t need to rely on grandiosity. Humbled," he penned.

Adnan then went on to recite prayers at the resting place, admiring the weather before giving his fans a mini tour of his travels, courtesy of his lens.

Previously, he had shared pictures at lunch, exchanging gifts with who he said was one of the makers of Erturgrul.

"Right now, I'm with Qadir Sahab, and he is the man who created Ertuğrul; his company created it," the Mom actor revealed.

Adding that something exciting was coming up for his fans, he has been revealing snippets from his ongoing shoot. We can't wait to see what's in store and wish Siddiqui safe travels.

The plaque outside Ertugrul Ghazi's tomb which Adnan Siddiqui was trying to get translated is a testament or advice to his son Osman and it is related to Sheikh Edebeli, a influential Arab scholar who shaped the policies of Khilafat e Usmania. The plaque says: "Hurt me, but don't hurt Sheik Edebali! He is the beacon (light) of our lineage (nation). Keep the weight on your scales of Justice unerring! Disobey me, but do not disobey him! If you disobey me, I will be upset and I will be hurt. But if you disobey him, my eyes will not look at you, and if they look at you, my heart will not see you! Our word is not for the sake of Edebali, it is for you to obey him! Count this as my will!."

The writing is Ertrugul's last will to his son Osman 1 in which he tells him not to trouble the sheikh mentioned and to be hospitable towards him.

I am indian and saw 1-2 episodes and must say the editing and screen play is brilliant. But nothing really stands out that you dont get elsewhere. Just overhyped.
