Dervishes Ceremony in Cappadocia

We will pick you up from your hotel that you stay in the boundaries of Cappadocia by our fully-equipped, modern and comfortable vehicle, and we will drive until we get to the place in where the show begins. Without paying for any entrance fee, you will be able to enter and have a seat when we get there.

The Start of Dervishes ceremony

At the start of Cappadocia Dervishes ceremony, a prayer to the Prophet Mohammed, a very significant figure for Islam, will take a place. Then, the ceremony will begin slowly, at a very oriental atmosphere.

Combining the semi-dark lightning, striking silence and the coherent melodies, when the stage is ready for hosting the dervishes, they will show up.

Symbolizing the metaphorical return to God, the dervishes will turn around their own axis. Amazingly, for an hour (the total time of the show), they will not lose their balance or harmony.

With their special clothes, moves and vibe, you will feel the resurrection and submitting to God

The earthly issues will be no longer important as they will make you feel, and you will get impressed and even inspired with the divine aura of them and the things that they present.

To sum up, during the entire ceremony you will wonder how they can keep going without making any mistake, you will feel peaceful, you will get amazed and you will want to learn more about their philosophy.

Generally known as one of the cultural symbols of Turkey, the dervish ceremony in Cappadocia is worth seeing when you are already in there. During the show, do not forget to take photographs, since you may regret later for missing the artistic shots.

The End of The Ceremony 

After the show ends, we will pick you up from the place to take you to your hotel. When our comfortable ride is over and you get off the vehicle, our Cappadocia Dervishes ceremony event will end and you will be able to get some rest.
