Classical Tour of Albania
Information on the main members of the sect and some of
lead down to the museum in the basement. Round the walls are
large display panels, all in Albanian, about the order and
past members. There are examples of costumes worn by members
of the sect.
Small display cabinets have personal objects from some of the leaders of the sect, with brief descriptions in Albanian and English.
At the far end is a reconstruction of the room in the masjid where special guests would be served coffee by the Dervishes.
There are paddles used for the preparation of Ashura, the special sweet made from wheat, legumes, corn figs, grapes walnuts, honey and cinnamon which is eaten to break the fast on the tenth day of mourning after a death. Behind them are examples of the different felt hats worn by the sect.
