Beautiful mosque on the top of Alaeddin Tepesi overlooking Konya, quiet and peaceful. There are two tombs of Seljukian Sultans which I could enjoy from outside. The mosque has some remains from the romans especially some columns.
Watch TRT2 program of Ümıt Işın to get more detail knowledge about Alaeddin Mosque. Lovely to enjoy the quietness and offer my pray.

Stunning mosque. I can't believe someone said this place was average? It's anything but if you appreciate history. Best mosque and complex in Konya.

A beautiful and very big mosque with a peaceful atmosphere and interesting history! It is located in the park which is also very nice to walk around and spend some time.

This mosque is located in a hill of the same name. It used to be the residence of the Turkish Sultans of Rum, ruling most of Asia Minor and, at certain point, trying to conquer Syria too.

The hill is surrounded by a wall, there is some big lonely and covered remain on the way up. And there are some Seldjuk tombs, probably of the sultans.

The mosque is nothing special. It's grey and low. Inside, the collumns are nice, as well as the mihrab.

Very average place! You can visit it or not. I visited it with Alaeddin hills and very dynamic Zafar Street.

Yes, you can enter it, but the grand mihrab is not visible as it’s under restoration. The imam here was very kind and demonstrated the use of the Seljuk era safe.

They could have some historical things placed with it. For us, it was just functioning mosque which you access by climbing the hill. Stairs aren't much and easily you can reach.

Unfortunately we couldn't find the grand sky blue minbar that is in the photos. There was a far bit of work going on so maybe that was why. The dome is more conical than what is commonly associated with mosques. It's clear to see that this is a much simpler design of mosque but much older than most as it is from the Seljuk era.

The Allaaddin Mosque was build in the 13th century by sultan Allaaddin. I was interested in visiting it, because I read somewhere that Rumi and his spiritual teacher Shems often prayed here. The mosque, which was undergoing a massive restoration when we were there, is so peaceful and beautiful! I highly recommend it, whether you are a Rumi follower or not.

Went yesterday evening to see the mosque while we were in Konya. It was barricaded with metal sheets undergoing major renovation and doesn't seem to be opening anytime soon. Check before going.
