Rumi’s tomb in Konya. Yes, the entire school complex was built to honor his passing. The burial hall houses many coffins of teachers and family members, but Rumi lies beneath the green dome. No other mosque in Turkey is allowed a green dome out of respect. This view is from the terrace restaurant of our hotel. It is my one photo that marks this pilgrimage. An interesting aside: when we arrived at the hotel, we were given a beautiful suite instead of the room we had reserved. Reason for the upgrade? Our reservation had been the 10,000 reservation in the hotel’s history and they wanted to mark the occasion. It was a nice touch to a long, long anticipated visit.
