The original of this mosque dates back to 16th century however, in the current building nothing is left from those days as the last renovation back in 1977 erased almost all its originality. Though the tomb and the mosque are named after Şems-i Tebrizi, the most influential disciple of Mevlana from whom Mevlana himself was abundantly influenced, the tomb inside does not belong to him. In fact no one knows when and where he died, but despite that common knowledge, people keep coming here to pray for the soul of Şems-i Tebrizi. The building itself is not as impressive as the other beautiful monuments of Konya, but it still worths a visit thanks to its spritiual position in the Mawlawi sect.
