Konya- Mevlana Museum square-Turkey

The symbol of Konya is this tekke (Sufi lodge) complex that holds the tomb of the 13th century religious leader, philosophiser and poet Mevlana Celaleddin Rumi, who founded of the whirling dervish sect of Sufism. The museum is set within lovingly tended rose gardens, which you walk through to the ornate Dervişan Kapısı (Gate of the Dervishes). Once inside the complex you enter the Mausoleum, which is the focus of much devotional worship to this day. Mevlana's Tomb is at the far end, flanked by tombs of close family and followers.
