MUST SEE

MEVLANA MUSEUM

The main reason to come to Konya is to visit the Mevlâna Museum, the former lodge of the whirling dervishes and home to the tomb of Celaleddin Rumi (later known as Mevlâna), who we have to thank for giving the world the whirling dervishes. This is one of the biggest pilgrimage centres in Turkey, and the building's fluted dome of turquoise tiles is one of Turkey's most distinctive sights.

 

ALAEDDİN MOSQUE

It is located on the north flank of Alaeddin Hill downtown; it is understood to have been part of the Seljuk Palace, which once stood on this hill. It is inferred that the construction of the eastern part of the mosque started about the middle of the twelfth century during the reign of Sultan Mesud I but it was completed in the second half of the century during the reign of Sultan Kilij Arslan II; furthermore, the decagonal tomb known as Kümbethane located to the northwest was also built in the reign of Sultan Kilij Arslan II.

 

KARATAY MADRASAH 

Karatay Madrasa was built by Celaleddin (Jalaludin) Karatay, a vizier of Sultan Izzeddin Keykavus, who commissioned an architect by the name of Muhammed bin Hawlan Al-Dimiski. The madrassa was completed in 1251 as a response to the growing educational needs of their capital Konya and as part of the Seljuk's commitment to learning and spreading knowledge. Faced with a site of mediocre size, the architect decided to adopt an enclosed plan with a single iwan. By arranging the whole units of the edifice around the central enclosure, he succeeded in achieving great functionality in this comparatively small space.

 

INCE MINARELI MADRASAH 

Erected in Konya between 1260-65 CE, Ince Minare Madrasa meaning "The College of the Slender Minaret" is one of the most impressive structures produced by the Seljuks using the central plan scheme that was to dominate much of their late architecture and that of their Ottoman successors. This new design approach replaced the centrality of the traditional courtyard with a domed space giving it additional symbolism and mysticism. Ince Minare is also famous for its magnificent portal which displayed a high degree of attention and combines sophisticated design and skilful decoration rarely seen in another Muslim building.
