Great spiritual place.

Highly recommended for people who is interested with spiritual things. There is no entrance fee and just in the center of Konya... 45 mins enough to see everything.

An interesting stop. The Emerald minerette is beautiful, as are the grounds. The Museum has an impressive array of exhibits. Well worth a visit.

It was a brilliant experience because of the spiritual context to the museum. Pretty much a lot of information to read and watch in the museum. Well documented.

By visiting the museum I had better understanding of mevlana's philosophy. Peacefull garden. Knowledgable explanations. An hour in the museum could be more than enough

Do you want to go to Selçuklu Ages? Do you want to breathe some humanistic, mistic and philosopic air? With a taste of special candies in Konya, feel the atmosphere.

We went as part of our RSD tour of Cappadochia. We found it interesting that this was a museum but also a working mosque where we could see the separate parts for men and women to pray.Also you could see the cells where the monks lived and a lot of artefacts belonging to Mevlana.

This is a large complex of buildings seeking to explain Mevlana's creation - the dervishes. It is very much dependent on a cult of personality yet gives fascinating details of Islam's only monastic tradition.

Unlike anything seen before, this combines a respectful religious experience with a set of small rooms around a courtyard, showing & explaining all aspects of Mevlana. Set in beautiful rose gardens with shady seating, this is worth a visit.
