Photographer's Note

Photo taken in the "heart" of the old part of Konya City. On the left side of the picture you can see the Selimiye Camii (Mosque), built between 1566 and 1574, when Sultan Selim II, was governor of Konya. On the right side you can see the "trademark" of Konya, the majestic Mevlana Museum with its fabulous, turqoise, conical dome where the tomb of famous poet, mystic and spiritual "father" of the dervishes, Celaleddin Rumi (Mevlana), is located.

Some of the most beautiful verses, by Mevlana (I think it means "Our guide"), this great teacher of love, that knows no boundaries, national or religious, cited in one of my previous posts, by my dear friend, Mesut:

"Come, come, whoever you are.
Wonderer, worshipper, lover of leaving.
It doesn't matter.
Ours is not a caravan of despair.
Come, even if you have broken your vow a thousand times
Come, yet again, come, come."
