If you appreciate Sufism then most definitely this place is worth visiting. Spend a few minutes in the mosque and feel a very calm and spiritual energy making your holiday different from the other usual holidays.

Sems tomb should be visited if you are coming to Konya to pay attribute to Mavlana Alrumi. However you to know that there is a huge doubt that this is his true tomb. The tomb is located inside a small mosque that is nicely preserved
