City of Whirling Dervishes

The Anatolian city of Konya is overrun with intellectual students, cultural events, and historical sites.
Appreciate the collections at Ince Minare Museum and Mevlana Muzesi. Explore hidden gems such as Aziziye Cami and Selimiye Mosque. Venture out of the city with trips to Esrefoglu Mosque (in Beysehir) and Aksehir (BatI Cephesi Karargahi Muzesi, Iplikci Camii, &more). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Karatay Medresesi Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Ates Baz-i Veli Turbesi, visit Konya Kultur Sokagi, and get engrossed in the history at Konyanuma Panorama Museum.
