Yenikapı Mevlevihanesi is the second dervish lodge The Mevlevi Tariqat brought into existence after Galata Mevlevihanesi of İstanbul.Very easy to locate it and reach at by various public transportation buses on the sahil (shore) road outside the ancient walls (surlar) in Topkapı.Worth to pay a visit.
