Performed in an ancient Caravanserai that was once used along the Silk Road you will be mesmerised by the location as well as the Dervishes as they share their religious enlightening ceremony with you.

Whirling Dervishes ceremonies start at 18:00 in winter and 21:00 in summer every night. The whole ceremony takes around one hour and we offer ‘Serbet‘, a religious drink, after the ceremony.
