Mevlâna Museum

Aziziye Mah., Mevlana Cad. No:1, Karatay/Konya

Founded on the burial place of the Sufi mystic Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi, this is the tekke of the whirling dervishes. The sarcophagi of Rumi, or Mevlâna, his father, son and followers, make this a place of pilgrimage. Around 1.5 million visit each year, particularly for his “wedding night”, the anniversary of his death in 1273 celebrated for a week in December. In the former rose garden of the Seljuk Palace, the building has been modified over the centuries, and has 17 cells, a kitchen and Semahane, the Ritual Hall where the dances were performed. Manuscripts, musical instruments and prayer rugs are displayed here and in the adjoining mosque.
