Konya (Iconuim) is renowned for Mevlana Celaleddin Rumi. Mevlana, born in Balhk Afghanistan in 1207, is one of the greatest Islamic sufists and the founder of the Mevlevi Sufi Order. His religion was based on good,
charity, humanity, love and union with God.

For Mevlana, poetry, music and dance were indispensable for the perfection of the soul. Mevlana's greatest work, Mesnevi is a
collection of 25,000 poems.
