Read the small book 'where two oceans meet' Listen to some reed music beneath the stars, sip tea and talk kilims and caravans in the local market place, start to feel history sitting by your side and gently leading you through a secret door to one of humankinds spiritual foundations.
Konya and this mosque especially, is a hot, high plains, dry city, with smog and bad traffic, but this makes it an experience of life. The market is good for hours (days) of local conversations, the traffic means walking (strolling) is the best way to see the shaded parks and alleyways. Visit at Ramadam and experience the restaurants, cafes and canteens all spring to life at dusk after prayers. Shams of Tabriz was all about experiencing life, go here to start. I travelled by bus from the coast, local busses are reliable and make regular stops at cafe's etc, you can continue on to Cappadocia from here easily and get to see some of the amazing landscapes of Turkey.
