Various types of air pollutants in the atmosphere forms naturally or by human source activities the appearance of the air depends on the state of pollution. Particulate matter is one of these pollutants which has a significant effect on human health. It has the ability to stay in the air for a long period or even weeks, and because of its small size and lightweight, it can move to around very long distances. This study was carried out in the city center of Konya considering shopping centers as a measuring points to monitor the relationship between concentrations of PM2.5 and the change of climatic factors for different seasons. We took different points and at different location to measure PM pollution indoors. The highest values for summer season were obtained at location AB (1739 mg/mᵌ), (1653 mg/mᵌ) at location B1, for autumn the same values were observed at location AB nearby (3785 mg/mᵌ) while the concentrations at location B1 did not exceed (3302 mg/mᵌ). These two points were record the maximum values and the reasons generally were about that the places did not contain fans or ventilation areas in addition to the large number of visitors.
