Great collection of materials that help you learn the life of a dervish. Such dedication and elegance. If you are interested in Sufi traditions, or calligraphy even, this is the place for you.

When I go to Mevlana Museum, I feel serenity. The spiritual atmosphere will deeply affect you. It is a must to go in Turkey. Mevlana is the symbol of tolerance.

A great museum/mosque capturing sufi traditions. Very well attended site where locals appeared to outnumber tourists by a vast margin. It is a world heritage site and deservedly so.

If you are looking to experience Sufism or to practice Sema there is a room in the back of the Masjid which is very spiritual and calm ... I found it weird that Rumis legacy the Sema Hall was turned into A Masjid

To understand Mevlana, one has to read and study for a long time, but to be with him you don't need to know anything. 'Just come, whoever or whatever you are' are his famous words. This spiritual leader's monument attracts millions of visitors from a variety of countries and religions every year.

Mevlana Museum is a real highlight! You can't miss it and a reason itself to visit Konya! The exterior is nice and impressive, also during the night when the lights bring a special mystic to the buildings. But the interior and the atmosphere inside...fantastic! The special about it is also that it is both a museum AND a place where... More

I attended on a Tuesday - entry fee payable. We were on a tour stop from Alanya to Cappadocia. It was a hot blue sky day. The ground were lovely, well cared for and clean. The buildings were interesting and I had the opportunity to frame some lovely shots. I did not feel the same spiritual sense that many other... More
