Konya

Konya, in south-central Anatolia is fabled to be where Perseus killed a dragon ravaging the town. The great Sufi Poet Rumi established the order of the famed whirling dervishes here. Archaeologists date human habitation in this area back 7500 years, making it one of the oldest known human settlements. Charming and old fashioned, Konya boasts some of the loveliest Seljuk architecture. Today you can visit the lovely medieval mosques and medrese and make a stop for tea at one of the ancient Silk Road caravanserai along the old Silk Road. Konya tours one of the highlights of the Turkey tours
