Yenikapı Mevlevihanesi

I find I do not have a special gallery for outside the city walls. In 2018 I first visited some graveyards outside the walls, then found myself in front of some recently built university buildings, and a complex that was part university, part a dervish whirling hall. I was kindly shown some of the buildings, the pictures I show here. I was informed that a Sema whirling ceremony is held here regularly.
The complex was built by the Janissary Scribe Malkoc Mehmet Efendi, a Mevlevi dervish. It was opened in 1597. A great poet Seyh Galip and one of the masters of Ottoman music, Ismail Dede Effendi, were educated here. It was a centre where Turkish traditional music and poetry were kept alive. It now houses the Alliance of Civilizations Institute, the Institute for Social Sciences, Islamic Studies Faculty and research centers.
