The tomb at the top of the hill contains Alaeddin and other sultans for as far back as the 12th century. If you are brave walk the wall and look down! A sense of history fills you here.

The Alaeddin Mosque is a wonderful example of Islamicarchitecture and well worth visiting. I was made to feel verywelcome, especially as a non-believer I was able to walk across the prayer carpet to see the wonderful carved ebony mimber and superb tiling. The park itself is shady with beautifully planted flower beds. There are lots of places for refreshment too.

I assumed I can find some thing special in Alaeddin Hill. But for me at least it was just something similar to other parks around the place. Worth of visit in extra time i think.

Take a tea, listen to tree's sound and visit the history of the Anatolian Selcuk Empire. Take a rest and go forward for Hz. Mevlana

Up the hill with the staircase fountain is another mosque. Souvenir vendors are outside but you can ignore them and enjoy the views of town from the grounds. There's another mosque down one side with pretty blue tiles on its minaret that are lovely as well.

A picturesque hill with a beautiful mosque toppling it (if female, remember to dress appropriately and take a shawl to cover your head). This venue is free. Alaeddin hill, in fact the area, may have been the fundamental basis to the story about Aladdin, his lamp and the life of a boy in Mesopotamia. The whole area of Konya has... More

The Alaeddin Mosque on top of the hill was built by the Seljuks and reflects the architecture of the period. The views of the city from the hilltop are not that impressive.
