Konya is a very old settlement center. Between 1400 and 1200, the Hittite Empire entered this region. When Hittites were destroyed by civil war and separatist activities, this region was ruled by Phrygians, Lydians, and Kimmers. In the time of Hazrat Umar, the Islamic armies conquered Konya. After the Ottomans, the Karamanoğulları, one of the most important Anatolian Principalities, left rich architectural and cultural monuments. Yavuz Sultan Selim Han repaired the mausoleum of the Mevlana Hadites. Kanuni Sultan Süleyman Han visited Konya in the “Irâkeyn” campaign. After the constitutional period, the population and the economy started to regenerate in the period of Konya Republic which regressed. A great fire in 1867 and a terrible famine in 1873 made the people in Konya upset.
