The Green Dome of the Mevlana Museum (formerly Mevlana Mausoleum) in Konya, Turkey. Mevlana, also known as Rumi, was a 13th century Sufi mystic and poet, sometimes referred to as the Shakespeare of the East. The sarcophagus of Mevlâna is located under the iconic green dome. The mausoleum was depicted on the reverse of the Turkish 5000 lira banknotes of 1981-1994. Until 1926 when it became a museum, the holy site was also the dervish lodge of the Mevlevi order, better known as the whirling dervishes.
