Alaeddin hill is really a must if you visit Konya. I short stroll from Mevlana museum. It has beautiful picture perfect flower garden that sets the mind in chill out mode. Cafes are available on the hill that sell different type of drinks mainly çay and delicious desserts. Very tranquil environment. Beautiful masjid is on sight aswell. Great atmosphere. Definitely...

Nice place for sunny Sunday afternoon. A little bit overcrowded, a little bit too much garbage around people, a little bit not enought service, but nice and peacefull.

this mosque is not beautiful but note the details. Look at the columns, they are all different. Go outside and see the tombs If an old yellow toothed Turk offers to show you around take him up on it Drink tea with him and give him a small tip and you will have had a great Turkish experience

From the front there was little difference from many other mosques, also the inside was very large, contemporary and lacking spiritual feeling (for us). As you go to the side and behind the older buildings come into view and you start to see what was here before. The courtyard, the tombs and the ruin below are interesting and not crowded... More

We drove around, got off and unfortunately did not have as much time as it deserved. It is a relaxing place to spend time on a cooler day or evening.

Peaceful place with well kept gardens and soft grass to sit on. Cool place (as in cool from the heat). Also 'cool' !!

I visited here with family on a hot day. Up on the hill it felt cooler and had a lovely chilled atmosphere. The mosque is certainly worth a visit and I would recommend a juice/tea in one of the tea gardens. Lovely parks for kids too.
