Hodjapasha Cultural Center, Istanbul Reviews - Write a Review

  • Expensive for what you get but worth it. The dance itself is very simple and repetitive but you do get treated to a some authentic local music by veteran musicians. The performance space is nice too with exposed brickwork and an intimate feel.

  • An impressive ceremony. Mysterious and captivating. Something to live and feel much more than to see.

  • It's a good place with a good I but it's too crowded and the introduction part is missing

  • Good place to remain completely silent for one hour.Astonishing performance by the Derwaesh and good music.

  • It's authentic and has a great atmosphere..the neighborhood is one of the most interesting ones. Definitely great area to explore. Has different events hosted there. The Sufi dervishes are a key part of real Islamic experience. Very easy to get to.
