This religious ceremony was very moving...I felt that I had wandered into a place of worship in an alien environment and got drawn in by the music and the dancing. I had read quite a bit about the meaning of the ceremony and thought it was exotic and unique. I was particularly interested in the music, which was typical Middle Eastern in sound and rhythm, with ancient instruments producing the melody and percussion.

I had agreed to see the whirling dervish ceremony because my wife persuaded me to and also everyone else was going so I didn't want to feel like a party pooper. I didn't know much about it. I'm so glad I went. The ceremony is mesmerizing.

This is amazing and the old building that they whirled was cool. The music was very relaxing. This was something, watching them start slow and picking up speed and not get dizzy or run into one in other it is a very spiritual experience. This is well worth coming to see.

I was very moved by the religious feeling and the amazing whirling that the Sufi followers practiced here in the Caravansary.Many visitors who were also captivated by the movements but also the feeling of pure meditative and religious feeling that was conveyed by the followers of Ru mi. The music the instruments and the whole event was something that I would not have missed. This is the heart of Ru mi's life and teachings.

Brilliant performance by the whirling dervishes, I was shocked that they didn't get dizzy, and loved the fact they wore traditional clothing. Fantastic show.

It has been a long held dream to see the Whirling Dervish. The experience did not let me down. It is a fantastic mystical experience. The rite including the music and the symbolism is one you will always remember.

It was totally different from anything I had ever witnessed. At the beginning when the music started, I found it best listened to with my eyes closed. It created, for me, a serene atmosphere. The Dervishes were unbelievable, so calm, peaceful, so wonderful to watch, I felt that I could be enveloped into their midst. To me, it was a very spiritual experience and well worth the visit.
