“Whirling Dervishes – Sufi Show in a 8 hundreds years old Caravanserai on Silk Road “
Includes: Collection & return to hotel + Entrance Ticket + 1 Hour Show
A religious ceremony of Sufi Dervishes
The ceremony takes place in an ancient renovated caravanserai. The mystical ceremony of the whirling dervishes is an essential part of a visit to Turkey.
You can see this show also in Cappadocia in a Historic Caravansarai built in 1238 on historic Silk Trade route.
The Whirling Dervishes took their name from Mevlana Jelaleddin Rumi (1207-1273), the mystical poet and great Sufi master. Sufis seek a close relationship with God, and for Mevlana it was through chants, prayers, music and a whirling dance.
“Come, whoever you may be, come. Even though you may be an infidel, a pagan, or a fire-worshipper, come. Our brotherhood is not one of despair, though you have broken, your vows of repentance a hundred times, come “
