Cappadocia 1-Hour Whirling Dervishes Show

3. Cappadocia 1-Hour Whirling Dervishes Show

The Sema Whirling dervishes ceremony is the inspiration of Mevlana Celaleddin-i Rumi (1207 - 1273). A part of the Turkish culture, it is also integral to the belief system and history of Konya. The ceremony symbolizes the different meanings of a mystic cycle to perfection; Ascension to Mirac. In essence, it is what we do as a form of remembrance to God. The most notable person in Konya was the world famous “Mevlana Celaleddin-i Rumi” who established the Mevlevi Sufi philosophy. Watch in wonder at this 1-hour show in Cappadocia, as the whirling dervishes take their place and praise the Prophet Mohammed. Following a chant, the extraordinary whirling dervishes revolve to represent the birth of humanity. With his hat (his ego's tombstone), and his white skirt (his ego's shroud) the dervish is spiritually born to the truth. When he removes his black cloak, he journeys and advances to the spiritual maturity through the stages of the Sema. At the beginning and each stage of the Sema, holding his arms crosswise he testifies to God's unity. It ends with Fâtiha for the souls of all prophets, martyrs and believers, and a prayer for the salvation of the country. Dating back centuries, the tradition represents in thrilling fashion the idea that in the universe, everything, from atoms to the solar system to the blood that circulates in the body, revolves.

What people are saying about Avanos

What a brilliant night! This event is a MUST visit if in Cappadocia. The food was lovely, service brilliant and the performances were spectacular. We had the best night with lots of music, dancing and enjoying the great atmosphere. The travel agency (Travelux) also did a great job at arranging everything. Our driver arrived 10mins before pickup point and was waiting for us at the end of the night without rushing us to safely return us back to our hotel. and we were one of the firsts at the restaurants. I was overwhelmed with the amount of food & drink options there were too. I would HIGHLY recommend this event!

Very pretty. Stunning views of the balloons. An unforgettable memory. The guide did not speak Spanish or English and communication was a bit difficult, but he was still very attentive to us and was very kind, accompanying us at all times and taking photos. I would certainly repeat.

The taxi picked me up at the hotel and took me to the place at the appointed time, the space was very large and beautiful, the food and service were good. Regarding the show, it was a positive surprise, very interactive and fun. I loved the whole experience

Great value for money. I have been to many Turkish Dinner shows and this was by far was the best. don't eat too much of all thr yummy entrees and main course otherwise you won't be able to dance with the pretty ladies and handsome men!

Very fun, very rich food and open bar of drinks. Highly recommended.
