Pay a visit to Shems Tebrizi's tomb, as Rumi would not have been Rumi if it wasn't for Shems. They cannot be thought of separately! Must visit in Konya! Felt very tranquil and peaceful, glad that we went!

This is location of Mevlana Rumi's tomb. There are tombs of other famous dervishes at this location. There is also a museum displaying clothing and artifacts used by dervishes over the centuries.

If you ever make it to Konya and you visit everything related to Rumi but not Shems, you will indeed lose many things! Shems has a very simple and humble mosque which is so well looked after by the people. Whenever you go there, it...More

On Şems-i Tebrizi 's tomb you can read the word "Nothing"--what he aimed at all his life--letting go off all desire, all possessions, the "me". Definitely worth the visit.

You have to go full circle in Konya: so is Rumi (Mevlana) and his teacher Sems. Is a great little mosque in a quiet little square with a beautiful fountain outside and inside everything is very intimate and you are able to “contemplate” your soul!

Sems from Tebriz. Veliyullah. He is a great sufi, he is known with love of Allah (ask). He is seikh (murshid) of Mevlana. During visiting close your eyes and open your hearth.

For people who wish to find a spiritual journey, this is one the must visits in Konya. He was the teacher of Rumi. The surround is very chilled and just nice to sit around and enjoy the simple like ambience. 4/5
