This grand Ottoman mosque is next to Mevlana Rumi's tomb. Inside it has some interesting patterns on the underside of the arches. This is a busy mosque mainly with locals.

The architecture is stunning, a must visit point of interest in Konya. Don't hesitate to visit the interior, especially during non prayer hours.

While sitting in the plaza in front of this mosque, be sure to be available and listen to the call for prayer. It's the loudest and most resonant in Konya and will amaze those with sensitivity to its meaning.
