I spent a month and a half in Konya in June/July 2014. Wonderful city. However, with historical sites there aren't as many, just the area around the Bazaar, Mevlana tomb, and Alaeddin. Not a bad thing, because in other ways its like a "normal" city - shops, malls, restaurants, etc.. But with eklekmek! It is also an excellent location for day-trips, such as Kappadokya, Beysehir, and Catalhoyuk. Its very modern, but also a reminder that there was an Anatolia that predated the Ottomans, with a rich ancient and medieval history on full display in Konya and the surrounding area.

is Mesut Özil turkish or German ? Who educated him ? Mevlana become big and important here in Turkish Seldjuk Empire and Not in Afghanistan or Iran ! He was Türk Like Özil is German.

1 year ago

Mesut Ozil is ethnically Turkish, with roots from Karadeniz. His grandparents immigrated as part of the Gastarbeitern (guest workers)....Mevlana was ethnically Persian, even though he moved to Seljuk Konya.

But Özil speaks with his Teammates in german, sufi still writing his matnawis
in persian. Also his two great Taechers Shamse Tabrizi and Attar were persian.

And there was no country named Afghanistan. It was Balkh where iranic people lived.

No, he was NOT an Iranian poet. He was born in Balkh which is in modern day Afghanistan.

He is Persian..why denied it? Afghanistan is part of Persian sultanate back then.

7 months ago

There was no Afghanistan back then! It was Balkh and there lived iranic people! Rumis main Teachers were Attar and Shams and both were Persians (like Rumi himself).

mevlana is not persian. the reason he used farsi in his poets is, in seljuck empire there were mainly using farsi even if its a turkish empire. farsi language is very good for poem and fonetic. But he was from afganishtan.

Well ım living in İstanbul so ım Turkish. But i didnt know what does konya looks like, or what happens there. Thanks to you, i learned more about my country :)

I'm an American but spent a semester studying at Konya :) Its definitely different and doesn't compare to Istanbul. It does have a slower pace, and more conservative (but there are some areas of the city that aren't). Outside the Mevlana Turbe, the Bazaar and some other sites downtown, there isn't much in the way of history to see. But take side-trips to Catalhoyuk, Beysehir, and Cappadocia, and you will get that. I liked the eklekmek, too

I know that Mevlana was born in the city of balkh in the present day Afghanistan. His ethnicity is Persisn and his books are mostly in Persian but after Mongols invaded Persia he migrated to the other side of the empire which is the present day Turkey.
Mevlana is really respected in Iran and his name and poems are even taught in Persian schools.

Rick is braver than I am.  Our government's feckless foreign policy has made me too afraid to travel to any country in the Middle East or near Middle East.

+bradwatson7324 I never had any trouble as an American in Turkey, and I spent a lot of time there (accumulative five months across three summers) throughout the country. It is much safer than even where I live or much of our own country. And I even went there immediately after the coup (which was blamed on the U.S.), yet people I met and talked with never treated me differently for being American. Most people know the difference between the people of a country compared to the policies of a government.

Turkey is very safe and a huge tourist destination. Media wants you to be scared 24/7.
