We were looking for a place where we could see the dervish dance, finally, by chance we came accross the whirling dervishes performance that taken place at Dede Efendi House, which was used to be a dervish and sufi music composer house in Ottoman times.
What makes this ceremony different than any other performances in Istanbul is the atmosphere you feel while watching the servishes and the music played by a live sufi music band.
Overall, I had a great, unique experience so that I can suggest those who seek for a real local experience.
