We take you from your hotel at around 17:30 or 20:30 for the whirling dervishes ceremony with a private minivan. Whirling Dervishes performance is taking actioın at an old caravanserai from 1249 AD. Watching 760 years old dance at an old building from that time makes it more sense. The ceremony takes 1 hour. You can not clap or take the pictures during the ceremony but at the end there is 2 minutes allocation for them. Then we will transfer you back to your hotel.

Whirling Derviches Ceremony
Sema is is the inspiration of Mevlânâ Celâleddin-i Rumî (1207 - 1273) as well as part of Turkish custom, history, beliefs and culture� It symbolizes in seven parts the different meanings of a mystic cycle to perfection (Ascension - Mirac). Contemporary science definitely confirms that the fundamental condition of our existence is to revolve. There is no object, no being which does not revolve and the shared similarity among beings is the revolution of the electrons and protons in the atoms, which constitute the structure of the smallest particle to the stars far in the sky. As a consequence of this similarity, every thing revolves and man carries on his life, his very existence by means of the revolution in the atoms, structural elements in his body, bye the circulation of his blood, bye his coming from the Earth and return to it, by his revolving with the Earth itself.
