Hodjapasha Cultural Centre Istanbul Reviews
Whirling Dervish Jun 04, 2010
You must definitely watch the "Whirling Dervish" dance aka Mevlevi Sema Ceremony. It's a 45 minutes performance by a group of spiritual dancers. They turn in perfection and synced with each another, accompanied by a team of traditional orchestra & colourful lights. Watch the speed as they turn.
I didn't understand the language represented however, it is a definitely must-see in Istanbul & worth the time & money.
Cost: Turkish Lira 50 per person (with complimentary beverage and snacks before the show)
Dos: No photography during the show & ensure total silence to enjoy the performance.
