Inegol is a small town situated in the Bursa Province of Turkey. Nowadays Inegol is very famous for die-hard-fans of the TV Series Dirilis Ertugrul and Kurulus Osman and a must-to visit point fro whom want to have an Ertugrul-themed travel experience in Turkey.

The Byzantium domination continues in İnegöl until the town conquered by Ottomans. The Seljuk Empire Alaaddin Keykubat gives Söğüt and surroundings to Ertuğrulgazi as winter quarters, and Domaniç and Ermeni Mountains as summer quarters. He has implemented the policy of getting along with neighboring Greek Beys and their feudal landlords and thus ensured that the clan got stronger morally and materially. After a while, Ertuğrul Gazi gets old and hands over his beylic to his son Osman Bey. Similarly, Osman Bey also continues the policy of getting along with feudal landlords in Bursa, Bilecik and surroundings.

Landlord Nicola one day learns that Osman Bey would attack the Angelacoma in a spring night and lays an ambush in a place called Ermeni Beli. Bay-Hoca, namely, Osman Bey''s young nephew dies in the war (1284-1286). Osman Bey feels very bad about the death of his brother attorney general''s son. Afterwards, he suddenly attacks the Kolça (Kulaca) Castle, which is very closely located to Angelacoma, with a troop of 300 soldiers and gets the castle. This incident is recorded as the first castle conquest in the Ottoman history (685 in Islamic calendar and 1286 in Gregorian calendar). Osman Bey never visits Angelacoma (İnegöl) and surroundings for approximately 14-15 years. Meanwhile, Osman Bey earns great achievements and gets the Karcahisar (İnönü Castle), Bilecik and Yarhisar Castles. A great many friends of feudal landlords of Angelacoma are erased from history.

Finally, he assigns Turgut Alp, who is a dear friend to him, to conquer Angelacoma. Turgut Alp conquers another castle, which was among the strongest ones of the time and which has caused a lot of work (699 in Islamic calendar and 1299 in Gregorian calendar). Osman Bey hands over the governance of İnegöl and surroundings to Turgut Alp. Afterwards, Turgut Alp governs İnegöl and surroundings for 36 years. His tomb is located in the cemetery of Turgut Alp (Genci) Village. İnegöl, which has been a township attached to the Bursa district during the government reform carried out in 1867, was attached to the Ertuğrul (Bilecik) district. The people have lived in İnegöl in peace and prosperity for many years and gained important investments thanks to grand vizier İshak Pasha (Prime Minister), among other Ottoman governors.
