  • As the customs, please visit this tomb first, pay respect to the Spiritual Master of the Mevlana. Peaceful place for prayers/meditations.  more »
  • This is the mausoleum of Sems tebrizi the teacher of Moulana Rumi. After paying your respects you can take a short walk from here to the mausoleum of Moulana Rumi. Lots of shops around selling gift it...  more »
  • After going to Rumi's museum and learning about him, I came to Sems, who is Rumi's teacher. It is nothing significant but you might as well come. It is a small mosque in a park and it is free. Beware ...  more »

  • A beautifully simple mosque which houses the tomb of Shaykh Shams al-Din of Tabriz, the teacher of the great scholar and poet, Mevlana Rumi. Entrance is free and as it is a place of worship (fully functioning mosque), visitors are expected to dress respectfully. Was brought here after reading Elif Shafak's '40 Rules of Love'. This place resounded with me spiritually and I recommend visiting Shams before greeting his beloved friend and students, Mevlana Rumi (who is just down the street).
  • Historically interesting. Not special.
  • Really Peaceful
  • A focus of continued local devotion
  • No its sucks

Where to stay in Konya

The religious and conservative city of Konya can accommodate all walks of life. You'll find a handful of hostels and guesthouses for the budget-conscious traveler, all within the city core and at walking distance from the city's biggest attraction, the mausoleum. If you want something a bit more upscale, look to the four- and five-star hotels, which are also within close proximity to the attractions. Because of the focus on the religious site, inns and restaurants rarely serve alcohol here. If this presents a problem, look for the few international chain hotels which are more geared toward the foreign traveler--these tend to feature a full bar offering.
