this is a nice open air shopping center made to feel like a old bazaar, but several shops are empty leaving fewer choices. The ceramic shop is nice but pricey, the owner does a at least some of the pieces himself using old designs as a model. He will let you bargain but not for a huge discount. There is a smaller shop who has a selection of books on the area which are reasonably priced and you don't need to bargain. I bought a book there for 15 liras the same book was 30 liras at another place.

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.
