"Historical Neighborhood in Konya" Konya Things to Do Tip by June.b

Konya Things to Do: 88 reviews and 214 photos

Starting from the back of the Mevlana Museum, is a local neighborhood where you can see some old houses, some of them looks historical, some abandoned, others just really old stone/wooden houses. Nice clean streets, children playing, and local scenes.

But be vary wary though as the city though metropolitan, it still is a relatively conservative place compared to other cities in Turkey. You are not supposed to take photographs of people randomly -- either they smile at you or frown, at worst, you'll get shouted at by the local kids.

So be careful, best to ask permission first if you can take their pictures.

Address: Konya, Turkey
