Sufi is a mystic that seeks to find divine truth and love through direct encounters with God.  Orders of Sufism developed religious practices focusing on self-control that enable both mental and mystical insights as well as a loss of self, with the ultimate goal of mystical union with God. The Sufi movement consists of fraternal orders in which leaders train and assist disciples in the mastery of Sufism’s philosophical principles and ritual practices. Such rituals and practices include writing and  reciting poetry and hymns; some of the most famous and  beautiful literature of the Islamic world has been written by Sufis. This tour is focused on Sufi practises, philosophy and  dargahs (sufi shrine). Knowing the fact that each order have different day and time of dhikr (Islamic devotional act), places of visits will change accordingly. The tour include visit to  dargahs, nevertheless we can not guarantee participation of dhikr due to unexpected events.  Mevleviye, Cerrahiye, Celvetiye,  Nakshibendiye are some of places that are on our list of the orders.
