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... 更多
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... 更多
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.

Whirling dervish ceremony, held in a 13th century caravanseri (caravan stop). In warm weather the ceremony is held outside in the courtyard, in cooler weather it is held inside.

If you know what you should expect from a sema ceremony, I am... 更多
The restored 13th century Saruhan Caravanserai near Avanos is a beautiful, historic setting to witness an authentic whirling dervishes ceremony one evening during a visit to Cappadocia. The one-hour ceremony is a religious ritual, not a cultural performance. Consequently, photography is not permitted, except for during a brief repetition of one element of the ceremony at the conclusion (which is... 更多
An authentic dervish ceremony by a local seme in a restored carevanserai with an opportunity for photos after ceremony. Pleasantly surprised that this was not the kind of "show" you see in some other areas of the country. Our tour guide had explained the ceremony to us prior so it made the ceremony that much more meaningful.
