Mevlana Museum - Review

A beautiful museum dedicated to Jalal-ad-Din Muhammad Rumi, a well known Persian Sufi mystic, a poet and philosopher well known as Mevlana Rumi. Also known as the Green mausoleum or Green dome, it was originally a lodge of the Mevlevi Whirling Dervishes, a mystical Sufi Muslim group. It also is the tomb and shrine of Mevlana Rumi who passed away in the early 13th century. Mevlana's successor Husamettin Celebi built the mausoleum in his master’s memory.

The conical dome and the wooden carvings make it a beautiful structure to visit. The lodge includes a Semahane where the ritual Sema or whirling ceremony takes place. The museum displays musical instruments and robes belonging to Mevlana, and other Ottoman collectibles like gold-engraved Korans from the 13th century. It is also a home to the prayer silk carpet. The tomb of Mevlana Rumi and his father Bahaeddin Veled is enclosed in a tomb guarded by a silver gate.

This museum is a must-visit on your trip to Konya.

Mevlana Museum, Konya Reviews

  • Very nice historical place in konya. I visited with my teacher Sir Khalid sahib. We both enjoyed it. Very informative

  • This is a wonderful place for athiest to experience something holy. I have no inclinations towards Sufism or Islam but Rumi's poetry captures me in nets of fire so I was happy to make this pilgramage to his tomb. They provide good history displayed in mannequins but read up on things before entering the actual mausoleum. The April bowl and several other items (including the tomb itself (it's the one with the biggest hat, a turban wrap as long as he was wise)) are not named or explained in plaques. Without researching ahead of time, you may not know the sign above the door proclaims that all who enter incomplete will exit perfect. But visit. See the a book of the master's work, a Q'ran so small the author went blind, and a box of Mohammad's beard hair. Take time to pray, or otherwise attune yourself hearing whatever voice led the long dead mystic to write his haunting verse. And enjoy the fragrant herbs that cloak the graves of those who followed him on your way to the exit and the lovely çay that keeps Konya in motion.

  • Spiritual place where you can find inner peace. However, the resting place is ubder restoration so you can not see the maqam of Hazrat Maulana Rumi. But with the power of Allah, I ask that Hazrat Maulana Rumi gazed upon us. Ameen.

  • The Mevlâna Museum, located in Konya, Turkey, is the mausoleum of Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi, a Persian Sufi mystic also known as Mevlâna or Rumi. It was also the dervish lodge (tekke) of the Mevlevi order, better known as the whirling dervishes. Sultan 'Ala' al-Din Kayqubad, the Seljuk sultan who had invited Mevlâna to Konya, offered his rose garden as a fitting place to bury Rumi's father, Baha' ud-Din Walad (also written as Bahaeddin Veled), when he died on 12 January 1231. When Mevlâna died on 17 December 1273 he was buried next to his father.

  • It was an amazing experience to see things that dated back all the way to the 13th century. It was rich with history and everything was preserved and showcased wonderfully.
