Cappadocia Dervish Semah Show

Tour Details

The whirling dervish show, known as the Islamic Meditation ceremony, which is the teachings of Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi, was held in a caravanserai on the Silk Road 900 years ago. It starts at 18:30 each day and the program ends at 19:30. If you are at the place where the show will take place at 18:00, you can visit the old caravanserai and arrange a better place for yourself.

Before the start of the program, a short imitation ceremony is held for photo and video, after which the real ceremony begins, the dervishes continue with chants and other details, and in great concentration they resemble the rotation of the planets.
