The long history of this wonderful religious experience is what made us book and see these oft quoted dervishes. The demonstration is long, very long. Mesmerising and spine tingling music accompanying the slowly graceful whirling is fascinating but also repetitive in its nature. If I'm honest I had enough half way through as did my husband but manners dictated that we stayed to the end and did not disrupt the spiritual trancelike state of the dervishes. Most children would struggle with this. If you have difficulty sitting or staying quiet for long periods bear this in mind and possible sit near the exit in case you need to escape. Definitely an experience but tick in the box for me and won't be repeated.
