Mevlana Pilgrims

Muslim devotees pray devoutly at various stations in the Monastery. These three stand before the tombs of Rumi and his father. Besides Rumi’s tomb and relics of his life, the museum contains a re-creation of monastic life during Rumi's time. I am touched by the gentleness of the people who come here.

When we are dead, we seek not our tomb in the earth
But find it in the hearts of others” . . . Rumi
