    The main reason to buy this specific package was to see the Derevish dancers. The description of the show reads: the show starts with Derevish dancers followed by seven dances by different regions. There were not Derevish, I promised my family to book a show where they could see them. The view is not great, depending on the place at the table you won’t be able to see whats happening on the dance floor

    4. Cappadocia 1-Hour Whirling Dervishes Show

    The Sema Whirling dervishes ceremony is the inspiration of Mevlana Celaleddin-i Rumi (1207 - 1273). A part of the Turkish culture, it is also integral to the belief system and history of Konya. The ceremony symbolizes the different meanings of a mystic cycle to perfection; Ascension to Mirac. In essence, it is what we do as a form of remembrance to God. The most notable person in Konya was the world famous “Mevlana Celaleddin-i Rumi” who established the Mevlevi Sufi philosophy. Watch in wonder at this 1-hour show in Cappadocia, as the whirling dervishes take their place and praise the Prophet Mohammed.
