  • Mevlevi Tekke Museum which is a tekke in Lefkosa near the Kyrenia Gate in Northern Cyprus. It has historically been used by the Mevlevi Order (Whirling Dervishes) and now serves as a museum and is one...  more »
  • Mustafa Kemal Ataturk in Turkey suppressed all orders Dervishes in 1925 as part of the reform that took place, considering them an obscurantist legacy of the past to be erased by Decree. In Nicosia the Tekke, so you call the monastery of Dervishes, he continued until 1954, when he died the last their exponent. The small museum is housed in what was once the monastery, near Kyrenia gate, is a recent and therefore extraordinary witness of life that the Whirling Dervishes will lead. The visitor can admire the original settings, vintage photos, musical instruments, the evocative graves of Dervishes, inscriptions, the reconstruction of a dance in the main room and more. Outstanding! Can't miss a look at Courtyard surrounded by walls, where we find other funerary stelae, and small but not negligible souvenir shop. VA made then about who has seen fit to keep these testimonies. Also in Plovdiv (Bulgaria) saw what was a tekke, today converted into a restaurant, but in Nicosia the effect was quite different. If you are interested in more information about whirling, there are also some books in Italian.

  • The Museum is situated in the old city of Nicosia on the Turkish side. It was originally a meeting place for meditation, to be closer to God. The complex also was the place where Dervishes could stop, the kitchen, the funeral hall. Now available for the inspection of the mortuary Hall and ethnographic museum, situated in part of the building. Quite interesting.
