Before the afternoon round table discussion started a group of Turkish dervishes arrived to check out the Batha Museum venue
What is the collective noun for a number of dervishes - a twirl? They examined the lower stage and investigated the low stone fountain then the upper stage with its rather steep drop down to the gardens below. After a tour of the beautiful gardens, they enjoyed some mint tea before taking selfies.
|Having a pleasant wander in the museum garden|
|Relaxed and happy visitors|
|The obligatory mint tea|
|And, finally, a Sufi Selfie|
The Turkish Dervish contingent are part of the Tariqa Khalwatiyya who will perform at the Batha Museum on Thursday at 8.30 pm.
