Mevlana Museum in Konya is probably the most famous attraction for tourists visiting or passing through the city. Rug collectors should also pay attention the Ethnographic Museum which includes a very large collection of antique and ancient Anatolian carpets. Among the carpets are carpet fragments from the 13th century Seljuk period. A visit here is a must.
Konya Ethnographic Museum
Ipek Yolu Carpets & Kilims
And if you are looking for rug dealers take a walk at Mevlana Cad. and visit some of the shops here. I can recommend you to visit Ipek Yolu Carpets & Kilims – Mehmet and Muammer Ucars’ shop in a side street to Mevlana Cadessi, Naci Fikret Sk. 1. They are selling new and antique rugs and kilims and are especially known for new Konya kilims and carpets with naturally dyed yarn from their own production. Rug repair is also an important part of their business.
