Known to the west as Whirling Dervishes, the Mevlevi Order was founded by Mevlana Rumi in the 13th century. The Order wrote of tolerance, forgiveness, and enlightenment. They survive today as a cultural brotherhood. They are not theatrical spectacles but sacred rituals.

The ritual of the Mevlevi sect, known as the sema, is a serious religious ritual performed by Muslim priests in a prayer trance to Allah. Mevlevi believed that during the sema the soul was released from earthly ties, and able to freely and jubilantly commune with the divine. Dervish literally means “doorway” and is thought to be an entrance from this material world to the spiritual, heavenly world.

The Whirling Dervishes played an important part in the evolution of Ottoman high culture.
From the fourteenth to the twentieth century, their impact on classical poetry, calligraphy, and visual arts was profound. Rumi and his followers integrated music into their rituals as an article of faith. Rumi emphasized that music uplifts our spirit to realms above and we hear the tunes of the Gates of Paradise.

Please be available at the theater 30 minutes before the showtime.

Important Notice: Latecomers are allowed to enter the sema session first 10 minutes for the sake of a peaceful ceremony. Booking of visitors who come later than 15 minutes is regarded as a No-Show and the ticket price will not be refunded.
Our theater is not suitable for wheelchairs.


The most important elements of the worldwide recognition of Mevlevi are the Sema Ceremony and Whirling Dervishes. This traditional ritual, which has been practiced for about 800 years, is one of the most important legacies of Turkish culture. Sema is a spiritual journey that represents the disappearance of the servant in the Truth by turning to the truth, exalting with love and leaving his soul, and his return as matured.


This unique exhibition experience, which presents the Whirling Dervish and Whirling Dervish tradition, one of the most important elements of Turkish culture, meets you in the historical and mystical atmosphere of Hocapaşa.

  • Video screening about the Sema Rite,
  • Information Boards: Information about Sema, Whirling Dervishes, and Mevlana
  • Objects: Musical Instruments, Accessories, Clothes
  • Hyperrealistic Whirling Dervish sculptures
  • Interactive Music and Poetry Kiosks
