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.
