For Muslims and non-Muslims alike, the main reason to come to Konya is to visit the Mevlana Museum (pictured in this layout). This is the former lodge of the whirling dervishes. The dervishes are followers of Rumi who is entombed in this museum. Because it is a sacred shrine, we were not allowed to take photos inside. There is also a casket containing strands of Mohammed's beard, with holes in the display case to smell the hair's scent of roses. I tried this and it does smell like roses. We did not see dervishes whirl here but we did see them in Istanbul. Again no photographs of that because it is a religious ceremony. When I shot this large photo I was happy that I shot in raw format because I was shooting into the sun and the picture was not great. So I at least was able to do some editing to improve it. TFL
