Shrine Of Jalaluddin Rumi, Konya

Shrine Of Jalaluddin Rumi

Konya was the final home of Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi (1207 – 17 December 1273),who was a 13th-century Persian poet, Islamic scholar and a Sufi mystic. His shrine has become a pilgrimage site over the years. On December 17th, a religious celebration is held for which thousands of pilgrims throng the mausoleum. Adjacent to Rumi’s tomb is that of his father, Baha al-Din Valed, whose sarcophagus stands upright, for legends tell that when Rumi was buried, his father’s tomb “rose and bowed in reverence.” On his sarcophagus, several of his poems are inscribed as well as verses from the Quran.
