By now I have many pictures of the museum dedicated to the famous mystic, Mevlana, so I give it a gallery of its own. From the Wikipedia: Jalāl ad-Dīn Muḥammad Balkhī (Persian: جلال‌الدین محمد بلخى), also known as Jalāl ad-Dīn Muḥammad Rūmī (Persian: جلال‌الدین محمد رومی), and popularly known as Mowlānā (Persian: مولانا) but known to the English-speaking world simply as Rumi (30 September 1207 – 17 December 1273), was a 13th-century Persian Muslim poet, jurist, theologian, and Sufi mystic. Rūmī is a descriptive name meaning "the Roman" since he lived most of his life in an area called Rūm because it was once ruled by the Eastern Roman Empire. Pictures will receive some new captions later. I include some pictures of the nearby Selimiye mosque, which stands at the edge of the complex.

The pictures of the interior I took before picture taking was forbidden (a shame).
