Full-Day Cappadocia Tour with Kaymakli...
Reviewed 25 October 2016

We attended a whirling dervish show in the restored caravaneseria which in itself is something considering it was a stable for camels and protection of the goods on the silk route, But the amazing ritual of the dancers is something you must experience whilst in Capadoccia, And they give you a photo opportunity at the end so as not to disrupt the show whilst it is on the go.

Very well restorated mid age typical carravanserai. Very traditional mesnevi Show. Great staff and non-commercial atmospher. If you are in Cappadokia, you should pay a visit.

I was so intrigued to know that this was an old Carvanseri that was restored, situated on the old Silk Road, were traders used to stop over night with their goods. We saw a whirling dervish ceremony there, and the ambiance of this place made it spectacular

I wen there with my husband to see the Dervish dancing.
We went in, thinking it was going to be something lighter... it turned out to be extremely inspirational, metaphysical and moving.
I got transported, same as my husband, we end up extremely relaxed and filled with joy and love.
When you talk to them they make you fill the love an peace, they feel themselves.
No need to rush with the camera, at the end of the "ceremony', they advised you to take photos or even do filming of the dancers.

Whirling dervish ceremony, held in a 13th century caravanseri (caravan stop). In warm weather the ceremony is held outside in the courtyard, in cooler weather it is held inside. Arrive early and you can walk around inside and out and wonder what it might have been like for a traveller 800+ years ago. The ceremony is about 1 hour long, after which you can take pictures of the participants. They also have a light and sound show they project on the courtyard walls of the caravanseri after the show before closing. Total time from hotel to hotel, usually 2-3 hours.
