Authentic Village Life

Ortahisar is a charming village in central Cappadocia, relatively untouched by tourism—horse drawn carriages still clatter down its cobblestone streets, and the residents greet each by name. At the heart of Ortahisar is the impressive ‘hisar’ or fortress from which the town gets its name. Today, the town retains its authentic feel, with a central square surrounded by mosques, coffee houses, ateliers, antique shops and traditional barbershops.

The House Hotel Cappadocia aims to add value to the region and offer guests a local, immersive experience, encouraging them to engage with and become part of the community.

Whirling dervishes ceremony

Sufi whirling is a form of Sama or physically active meditation which originated among Sufis, and which is still practiced by the Sufi Dervishes of the Mevlevi order. It is a customary dance performed within the Sema, or worship ceremony, through which dervishes (also called semazens) aim to reach the source of all perfection, or kamala. Revolving from right to left around the heart, The Semazen embraces all humanity with love. The human being has been created with love in order to love. Mevlâna Jalâluddîn
Rumi says, “All loves are a bridge to Divine love. Yet, those who have not had a taste of it do not know!”
