Caravanserais of Cappadocia

Cappadocia, Turkey

OPEN HOURS:
18:00 – 21:00   Daily

Beware the Whirling Dervishes!

Or better yet, go see them twirl in their evening ceremonies!

Since the 10th century camel trains (originally kervan or as we now call them Caravans) would trade across Turkey; stopping along their routes at inns known as kervansaray or caravanserai – the Caravan Place.  These buildings  eventually grew form small accommodations and stables into larger fortresses that would be used as both inns and religious purposes.

Just outside Goreme is the Caravanserais of Cappadocia; where you can wander during the day or take in the traditional Dervish Dance.  A anachronistic evening to be enjoyed with a just a few other tourists.
