  • On the recommendation of our guide, we wanted to experience the Whirling Dervishes. There is a weekly performance on a Sunday at 5pm at the Mevlevi Museum, which is just off the end of the main İstikl...  more »
  • Right next to the place at the beginning of the end of Istiklal Street this door; dünyevilikten purification of divinity, entirely you serenity atmosphere. Rumi's love and tolerance on the circuit board, you can feel the warmth of open arms to everybody. Wooden structure consists of walking through the creaking floors and floors of following you. There's stuff from those years Sufi music playing and reviewing the works of complement. Big garden, he fled to seek refuge in the crowds was the resting place of the cat.

  • If you want a unique cultural experience, buy tickets to see the Whirling Dervishes perform at the Galata Lodge. It's a historic building that puts on performances every day. Go early so you actually get a seat with a good view. The performance lasts more than an hour and it's interesting, but if you have a hard time sitting still like me, you'll get tired of it after ten minutes. Pro tip: If you are bored of this performance, try to pick one guy and focus on them to see if they make any funny facial expressions as they whirl around.
  • Bring a small towel, and wash your feet. A perfect place to rest and cool your feet after or before walking Taksim + Istanbul. Connect at this small retreat by washing your feet at the fountain.
  • Nice bir not as expected
  • Nice place to visit
  • The exhibition is not extremely informative for the people unfamiliar with sufism, but the devishes' perfomance is truly amazing and one of a kind experience. Highly recommended
