Unfortunately we couldn't find the grand sky blue minbar that is in the photos. There was a far bit of work going on so maybe that was why. The dome is more conical than what is commonly associated with mosques. It's clear to see that this is a much simpler design of mosque but much older than most as it is from the Seljuk era.

The Allaaddin Mosque was build in the 13th century by sultan Allaaddin. I was interested in visiting it, because I read somewhere that Rumi and his spiritual teacher Shems often prayed here. The mosque, which was undergoing a massive restoration when we were there, is so peaceful and beautiful! I highly recommend it, whether you are a Rumi follower or not.

Went yesterday evening to see the mosque while we were in Konya. It was barricaded with metal sheets undergoing major renovation and doesn't seem to be opening anytime soon. Check before going.

This mosque standing on a hill is under restoration, but you can get inside. The inside of the mosque is graceful. There are some travellers walking around and taking pictures: Beware! There comes a fake guide and he askes you to show you around the city of Konya! He is an excellent speaker of English but excellent at asking for a tip as well. Of course I declined his offer of city guiding. He speaks to you if you are walking around the top of the hill.

I don't like word mosque, remind me of spanish inquisition. This is beautiful masjid from 12 century, with magnificent minber and mihrab.Wooden minber is built without single nail and still holding . Built in 1155.
