    Well presented and explained! Due to the reduction in tourists in the area, That was quiet and lots of spare seats, so everyone got an excellent view of the program. Please do appreciate in silence while the program and wait to take for pictures until the end. They do put on a second dance for pictures, but the first is an actual full ceremony and should be watched. That is only for pictures.

  2. Campbell

    We were both amazed by this mystical show. All of them did a wonderful job and understanding the ceremony in the dance was inspiring.

    Great Introduction… While there are other whirling dervishes performances in Turkey, that is an excellent introduction to the tradition. Bear in mind this that is a religious rite and the performers all work during the day, so there will only be a public performance if enough tourists have pre-booked the program.

  4. Carmen

    Amazing Sufi show in Cappadocia… Attended that show with a tour group and was not disappointed. The Sufi show is solos and you are not supposed to clap as it is a religious experience for the performers. Photos are allowed at the end of the show as two of the dervishes come back out for that opportunity…

    Sufi dancers in the Cappadocia region… Nice to see Dervish dancers and experience the atmosphere in an old building. Whirling Dervish Sema Ceremony is an amazing and awesome ambiance.
