We did this as a side trip from our tour. The whirling dervishes did seem to be a true religious exercise. It was a positive cultural experience for us. We paid our guide who then paid the attraction. We don't know what his cut was.

Saruhan Caravanserai is a well-preserved 13th century caravanserai which, of course, was on the Silk Road. It is near Urgup in Cappadocia. We attended a Whirling Dervish ceremony there and it was really wonderful. The ceremony lasted 50 minutes, although it seemed like it was...More

I visited the Saruhan cervanserai and it was a waste of time and money. Very touristic show, I couldn't see all the stage and the musicians were hidden behind a column. I visited the whirling dervishes in Konya, and that was an amazing experience.

If you want to see the real dervishes, it's better to go to Konya. At saruhan it's very touristic, and waste of money (25 euro). The actual show is only 20 minutes.

I much enjoyed the evening performance. The location was beautiful. It was mid December so there was virtually no one there for the performance. Great seats to say the least. Having heard about the Whirling Dervishes Ceremony for so many years it was a treat...More

I believe it was about 8 PM. The hotel will arrange for pick up and return for you. I think the shows are only in the evening. It can be cool so take jacket.
