“Come, come, whoever you are, wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving, it doesn't matter. Ours is not a caravan of despair.” -Rumi
This central Antatolian city is infused with a special kind of spirituality, thanks to the lasting influence of Sufism and Rumi, the mystic and poet who is buried in a prominent tomb in the center of Konya. Thanks to the many conquerors and civilizations who have passed through, the architecture of the city is diverse and fascinating, with the turquoise tower of Rumi’s tomb giving way to Seljuk and Ottoman mosques. Rumi and the whirling dervishes of the Mevlana order are the main draws in Konya, calling pilgrims and spiritual visitors to visit, pay their respects, and feel some of the energy that infuses the Konya air. Konya embraces that heritage, with regular performances of whirling dervishes throughout the city and museums dedicated to Rumi, along with an annual festival that attracts both Sufi devotees and lovers of Rumi’s poetry.
Konya is located on the Central Anatolian Plain and is the main major city in the region, and the seventh-most populous in the country, making it a common place for tourists to visit. It is a city that is both fiercely local and deeply welcoming to visitors who find themselves exploring the mystic vibrations of this beautiful, spiritual place.
