Next to his turbe Ghazi Husrev-bey built a smaller turbe of hexagonal shape for Murat-bey Tardić. Murat-bey was a freed prisoner of war who embraced Islam. He was freed in accordance with the wishes of Ghazi Husrev-bey who appointed him his duke and ćehaja (deputy).
Based on a chronicle which describes the military Dalmatia from 1536 we find out the following:
This Murat-bey, who was later decorated in a desperate battle near Gorjan, was, according to Ištvanfy, from Šibenik, and in his youth he came into Turkish slavery and as a slave came to Ghazi Husrev-bey court where in time he was appointed duke… We have determined, from the above text, that this statement of his descent is trustworthy. We were also able to determine that Murat-bey had a brother in Šibenik, a priest by the name of Jurje Tardić, and this brother of his, as we were able to understand from a report by a Šibenik prince dated 30 May 1526, was a canon of a chapter house and had remained on brotherly terms with his brother Murat, at that time a gate-keeper of Ghazi Husrev-bey, since that same spring he was in Sarajevo paying him a visit, and it was his intention, as we had come to understand from that same report, to visit his brother again.
In 1528 Murat-bey conquered the fortified city of Jajce and in 1537 he did the same with the impregnable city of Klis and the entire Military Border in Croatia and Slavonia, when from the newly conquered territory the Klis sanjak was formed.
And that’s how one of the most important strategic places on the coast of Adriatic Sea, tough (unconquerable) city of Klis, fell under Ottoman rule and later became the seat of the newly formed Klis sanjak in which, at the suggestion of Ghazi Husrev-bey, Murat-bey was appointed its first sanjak-bey and from that time was given the name of Gazi Murat, and to reward his bravery the Sultan himself, according to the historian Muvekkit, granted him the zijamet and Murat was given the title of bey.
After he became well known in the wars against the Venetian Republic and Austria, Murat-bey died in 1546 as the Sanjak-bey of Slavonia. His body was moved to Sarajevo and placed inside the smaller turbe.
According to the decrees from Ghazi Husrev-bey’s testaments Murat-bey was appointed the first Mutawalli (Administrator) of Ghazi Husrev-bey’s Waqf. In accordance with the same decrees each new Mutawalli is chosen from among the descendants of Murat-bey.
Above the entrance into Murat-bey’s turbe is a stone table, 30 X 85 cm in size, with an inscription in Turkish language. The inscription is written in four elliptical spaces, edged by lines.
“When Murat-bey departed from This World, whoever heard uttered the following words; may God bless Murat’s soul.”
The year of the chronogram is expressed in ebdžed with the words “Cani Murade rahmet”, whose numerical value is equal to 952, which is the year Murat-bey died, according to hijra, and which corresponds to year 1545/46 AD.
