The Selimiye Mosque is located next door to the famous Mevlana Museum in Konya. The mosque was commissioned by, and named for, Sultan Selim II (1566-74) in the Ottoman style. Construction began in 1558 when Selim was still a prince and was completed shortly after he became sultan, in 1567.
Like the Ottoman mosques of Istanbul, the Selimiye Camii is roofed with a large dome surrounded by semi-domes and sumptuously decorated inside. One interesting feature of the interior is the spire of the minbar (pulpit), which closely resembles the Green Dome of the Mevlana Museum.
