Each year more than a million Turks come to this town in Anatolia to pray. The Mevlana Museum is one of the holiest places in Turkey because it houses the philosopher´s tomb and the mystic Mevlana, which is revered by Muslims. In addition to the museum, Konya has a special charm about it. There are more than one hundred thousand wonderful places that are worth visiting. What impressed me most is the sharp contrast between the modern and the more traditional. In Konya, for example, you can see exactly how profound Turkish history is but at the same time, we see streets lined with modern buildings, luxury shops and glamorous establishments.
