Interesting museum within the stunning Sufi monastery. Clever use of the Mevlanis rooms to display items and well presented information boards describing their life and path to becoming Dervishes. Worth seeing at night. Beautiful green dome lit up against night sky.

We spent only one day in Konya when half of it must be devoted to this fantastic complex. Even when you approach it you get amazed by the sight. The green minaret is really breathtaking and unique. Again the entrance is free. The whole complex includes fantastic gardens, tombs, museums and a huge mosque which is now the tomb of... More

Really neat place. Also, when we went it was free. Not sure why. I loved that they had manikins to show somewhat how they lived.

Holy Shrine /Tomb of Mevlana Calaladdin Rumi, the big and famous scholar. He is famous with inviting all people to meet. Was a toleared and deep scholar. Had and interesting life. I think he is known more by turning dervishes than his opinions and knowledge in civilization of Islam. Museum together/inside his tomb. Need to read more about his life... More

This is the mausoleum for Rumi. Home of the whirling dervish. This is a mosque, mausoleum and museum. Simply put, Rumi taught peace and love. "Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it."

Thia place is good.If you are Muslim or not,he loves you.Because he has tolerance. He said "Come,whoever you,come!" He is important for Islam.He and Semsi Tebrizi have very beautiful friendship. You should come Konya and visit Mevlana and Şems..Yours respectfully...

Different piece of culture. Lovely museum for the tourists and a different type of thing to see. If you go to Konya then this is a must to appreciate Turkish culture.
