Fes Sufi Festival ~ Dervishes Case the Joint!

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.
