Interested in learning more about Rumi ? What a better way to learn about Sufism than by actually seeing a Whirling Dervish ceremony ! Every Monday night a Whirling Dervish ceremony at a little Monastery located in Istanbul-Fatih, (near the VEFA football stadium) gives the intrigued visitor an once in a life time opportunity to see an unique religious ritual.
