The Shrine of Shemsuddin Tabrizi, Konya

Situated a half mile from the shrine of Mevlana in Konya, this building is now a mosque but receives many
visitors each year, paying respect to the 'Beloved Shems' who played such a seminal role in the life of Mevlana.
The building was formerly a a 'Sema Khana' or place for the 'whirling dance of the Mevlevi' dervishes.
