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.show original

The museum in on the edge of the historical and cultural part of northern cyprus. Though it is a holy place but it seems almost an abandoned place. What a pity!
