  • Konya Anadolu Selçuklularından is one of the great remaining structure. Very fine workmanship and details is a very rare. Simple structure that appears from the outside, on the contrary, it's very diverse and rich. When it comes to Konya architecturally is one of the most exceptional works to be seen.
