The cost is 35 Euro per person, included two way transportation.A brief information about the Whirling Dervish and the Ceromony;Sema (Whirling Derviches Ceromony), is the inspiration of Mevlana Celaleddin-i Rumi (1207 – 1273) as well as part of the Turkish culture, belied and history in Konya. It symbolizes the diffirent meanings of a mystic cycle to perfection. 
Contemporary science definetly confirms that the fundamental condition of our existance is to revolve. There is no object, no being which does not revolve. Everything whirls and man, a whirling dervish, carries on his life, his very existance by means of revolution in the atoms, structural elements in his body, by the circulation of his blood, by his coming from the earth and return to it, by his revolving with the earht itself.
The Sema (Whirling Derviches) ceromony represents all a mystical journey of man’s spiritual ascent through love, finding the truth and arriving to the “Perfect”. Then he returns from this spiritual journey as a man who reached maturity and a greater perfection, so as to love and to be of service to the all creation, to all creatures withour discriminating in regard to belief, class or race. 
The dervish with his hat (his ego’s tombstone) and his whire skirt (his egos’s shroud) is spiritual born to the truth. When he removes his black cloak, he journeys and advances to the spiritual maturity through the stages of the Sema. At the beggining and each stage of the Sema holding his arms crosswise he represents number one, and testifies to God’s unity.
While whirling his arms are open, his right hand directed to the sky ready to recive God’s beneficence, gazing his left hand turned toward to the earth for giving what he recived to poor, he turns from right to left, pivoting around the earh. This is his way of conveying God’s spiritual gift to the people upon whom God “looks with a Divine” watchfullness. Revolving around the heart, from right to left, he embraces all of humankind, all the creation with affection and love.

        sunlight. Lying on the hot marble slabs it is easy to image yourself transported back to the time of the Saracens.

        It is a place where you can rejuvenate both body and mind. After changing into the traditional 'Pestemal' a type of sarong, and wooden shoes called 'Takunya, your body is acclimatized with warm water, then scrubbed with 'loaf', to remove the top layers of dead skin cells and ingrained dirt.
        The soap massage that follows is pure melting pleasure, leaving your skin refreshed, tingling and your whole body rejuvenated. A warm dry towel, a place to relax and a taste of Turkish delight ends the session, unless of course you want to go the whole way and take a sauna or Turkish massage.
