There is a place where voices sing of your beauty, a place where every breath carves your image in my soul.” It is not known exactly what place was meant in this poem by the sage Jelal-al-DIN Rumi, who lived in the XIII century, but it is possible that it is inspired by the image of the second homeland of the poet — the city of Konya, located in the Central part of Anatolia. Konya is the capital of the province of the same name with a population of about 1.5 million people, the ancient religious center of Turkey and the birthplace of the Sufi tradition.

According to one legend, once the city was attacked by a dragon, and the ancient Greek Perseus killed the monster. Continue reading
