Emir Sultan Mosque
Getting Dizzy in Turkey
The Whirling Dervish Lodge in Bursa puts on a nightly spiritual performance that gets you back to the basics of why the whirling dervishes exist. This is no 'show' for tourists, this is a spiritual event and service. I felt lucky that they allowed me (a woman) to sit on the main floor to take photos and video. Normally women sit in the top balcony and men are on the main floor. You can see the utter devotion on these men and boys' faces - a true experience in Turkey!
