In Turkish “caravanserai” means a roadside inn where travelers could rest and recover from the day's journey and, now, you are the guests of a caravanserai for a spiritual experience that we call as Sema Ceremony. The whirling dervishes who perform the ceremony will introduce you how their soul gains wisdom with the love of god by the master view of Mevlana Celalettin Rumi. The Sema process takes about 45 minutes with 7 different stages including different meanings and at the end they maintain the religious “nirvana”.
