Text with links to sights: A central building faces a courtyard with an ablutions fountain and surrounded by patches of a garden with graves of its cemetery, as well as some mausoleums that may be freestanding or are connected to larger buildings. Opposite the central building the former cells of the monks and the kitchen are now used to exhibit a large part of the collections of the museum (though a lot is in the central building). That central building houses a prayer room (the mosque part), a semahane (where the sema whirling ceremony would have been) and the monumental grave of Mevlana in a “türbe” (mausoleum). Near his resting place are sacrophagi of followers. Around the buildings described so far now is a large garden or park, where one now enters the museum grounds and has fine views of the central part. More views from outside the grounds one can have when walking around them.
