Cappadocia Whirling Dervish Ceremony!

Whirling Dervish ceremony is a show that is not often found in Anatolia but is of great importance for Anatolian Islamic culture. This show is held in a meaningful way to introduce a culture to visitors and ensure that they also witness these peaceful moments. The Whirling Dervish ceremony was taught to Rumi by Shams-i Tabrizi. Considering its deep meaning, it can be expressed as the dhikr rite of the Mevlevi dervishes. A demonstration performed by turning the right palm to the sky and the left palm to the earth is a ritual that is taken from the Right and distributed to the public.
