Inscription. English:
Following the passing of Mevlâna on December 17th, 1273, Alâmeddin Kayer and Gürcü Hatun the wife of Süleyman Pervade the Seljuk Emir made Bedridden from Tebriz build a tomb one year later.

Three sections of the tomb that rise on four elephant-feet are open; top of its is cuspidate and covered with chinas. Inside of the tomb was covered with hand-drawn ornaments on the gypsums, The tomb was restored during the periods of Karamanids and Ottomans. The tiles on the external surface of the dome were removed in 1964 and changed with Kütahya chinas.

The Mevlâna Dergâh developed around the tomb of Hz. Mevlána. Over the years the Ottoman Sultans made many additions: Yavuz Sultan Selim built a Şadirvan (porched, ritual cleansing fountain); Selim II built a Semâhane (Whirling Room) and a praying room; Murad III built the Cells for Dervishes and the Kitchen.

There are also water constructions such as Selsebil and Şeb-i Arûs Pool besides the tombs of Hürrem Pasha, Sinan Pasha, Hasan Pasha, Mehmed Bey and Fatma Hastun in its courtyard.

In the Mevlâna Museum which was opened as the “Âsâr-ı Atîka Müzesi” (The Museum for Ancient Arts) in 1926, tho works from Mevlevi ethnography, manuscripts and tablets are exhibited.
