A dizzying spiritual experience

This is a don’t miss event for sure! Performance takes place at Sirkeci railway station and lasts around an hour (it’s advisable to arrive earlier so as to catch a better spot). Personally, I preferred the first part of the ceremony with the musicians whose tunes were mesmerising. Watching the dervishes was a bit challenging for us not profficient in whirling, but overall it was an otherworldly experience and I would gladly attend it again.

Fascinating show. Thought it was first come, first seat but all the front seats were booked by people who went to the doors and bought. So no point in getting them online unless you be absolutely safe with getting in a ticket. The place is stunning and the staff were very nice. Thoroughly enjoyed the show and the whirling dervishes along with the enchanting music was amazing.

The Dervishes! Wow!

I would have liked an introduction to understand more about the ritual. The first 30 minutes was the orchestra/band
