Whirling Dervish Show
Held in the spectacular setting of Saruhan, a 13th century Saruhan Seljuk caravanserai (motel for camel trains), this ceremony is the inspiration of Mevlana Celaleddin-i Rumi (1207 - 1273).
The Sema (whirling ceremony) represents a spiritual ascent via love and truth to perfection, and the return to better serve all without descrimination in respect of belief, class, or race.
The ceremony is performed in a respectful atmosphere and the audience remains silent.
After the ceremony an amazing light show is held in the courtyard, showing scenes from Cappadocian culture.
Turkish Night Show
This fun evening highlights the various regional dance traditions with colourful costumes, as well as oriental dance (belly dancing).
Some of the dances are simple traditional, others are performed with a great sense of humour and some volunteers from the audience.
Before the show starts, a traditional wedding meal of lamb and rice is served.
If you prefer no meal you can arrive a little later, in time for the start of the performance.
All evening you are served with free alcoholic and soft drinks.
