  • The Whirling Dervish

    We wanted to see a folk dance and our hotel recommended a program put on by a local student dance troop. I don't remember the exact cost of admission, but it was very reasonable. They presented dances from all over the region. Great experience.

    The building of the monastery of Mevlevi brotherhood houses a collection of Sufi musical instruments, dervish accessories and manuscripts of turkish poetry.
    Twice a month there are concerts and perfomances of Sufi music and dances.

    Its a very interesting ceremony to go and watch. Just be careful about flying snot from some of the dervishes!! A warning: If this is something you want to see, they only whirl once a week here.
