Sahib-i Ata Külliyesi information
Behind its requisite grand entrance with built-in minaret is the Sahib-i Ata Külliyesi, originally constructed during the reign of Alaaddin Keykavus. Destroyed by fire in 1871, it was rebuilt in 13th-century style. The mihrab is a fine example of blue Seljuk tile work.
Around the corner, in the old dervish lodge, is the Sahib-i Ata Vakıf Müzesi with its red-brick and blue-tiled interior now home to an interesting collection of religious artefacts.
