Mausoleum of Mevlana

Celaleddin-i Rumi, known asMevlana/Mawlana, lived and died in Konya Province in Turkey. He came to Konya with Sultan 'Ala' al-Din Kayqubad’s invitation, and when his father died, Sultan Kayqubad gave his rose garden as a burial place for Rumi's father. Later, on December 17th, 1273, Mevlana died and was buried in the same rose garden next to his father. His successor Husamettin Celebi built a mausoleum for his maestro Mevlana to architect Badr al-Din Tabrizi. The mausoleum is called Kubbe-I Hadra and was finished in 1274. In years past, this mausoleum first became a complex, and more recently, a museum. Today, it is one of the most visited places in the city.
