One of Turkey`s oldest continuously-inhabited cities, Konya is known as the `Home of the Whirling Dervishes`. Konya`s golden age was in the 12th and 13th centuries when it was the capital of the Seljuk Sultanate of Rum. The city`s renown derives from the nearby ruins of Catal Huyuk and, more so, from the shrine of Rumi, the great Sufi poet (1207-1273). The most famous building here is the Green Mausoleum of Mevlana Celaleddin Rumi, the former dervish seminary, attached to the mausoleum, is now a museum, devoted to Rumi`s works.
