We went to this service which is held once a week on Sundays at 5pm and we were lucky enough to be in town at the time and were curious to see what it was like. Surprised to see just how many people were there and it started off very slowly, lots of speeches in Turkish and music before the Dervishes actually came into the main area. We were all given a leaflet which explained all about it and it was very interesting to know why they dress as they do and what the service means. There was a lot of walking around and bowing and then the whirling started, it was quite mesmerising and amazing how they never got dizzy or bumped into each other. It was so weird and different from anything we have been to before and you could see that they were all clearly totally engrossed in it. This is a religious service and certainly different from any other I have been to, but it was very interesting to see and learn more about it.
