Must see in Konya

Interesting museum. Beautiful grounds. Easy to walk around and see everything. Not a lot to do in Konya. This has to be one of your stops.

Most people make a stop here simply to see the Mevlana Museum and the tomb of the whirling dervish founder Mevlana Rumi who wrote his famed poetry here in the 13th century. You entered the Mevlana Museum complex at the graveyard. Several tombs line... More

The Mevlana museum is a classical masterpiece.The setting of the lodge with the short written explanations and effigies of the characters transport one to the very presence of the master.I had read the Masnavi several years earlier, but what i had witnessed on 11th June 2015 in Konya with my family was a miracle.It is an experience worth traveling for.Let...

We visited the museum as part of a tour group. The gardens around the museum were great and we watched the workers planting the gardens. The museum itself is ok however it doesn't take that long to look around. Once you've seen so many fantastic museums, this one pales in comparison.

Mevlana Museum has lot to offer to its guests. This place was functioning as a education building. Education in spiritualism. Students of Sufism were educated here. So many rooms around the actual building was the rooms for the students and it has many artifacts inside. They all have stories, meaningful stories. While you are inside to room you can see... More

It's sad to see a Persian poet isolated in Turkey... . The museum was so attractive, local people with their culture doubled the attraction of the museum. The management was also adorable. The outer environment was surrounded with massive colorful rose flowers which was amazing.

This is more of an insight to the mevlani way of life rather than just a display of artefacts. Entry is free but you have to pay for a recorded guided commentary - we didn't bother and it was fine as everything is explained in Turkish and English.
