Halveti (Khalwati) Dervish Lodge

The Dervish lodge does not exist today. Instead, a branch of the Greek National Bank was built in its place. We found information concerning the Dervish lodge in Evliya Çelebi’s records:

“The Halveti Tarqat Dervish Lodge is huge and eccentric. It has an old sheikh called Ali Dede and it has got a visiting space named after Murad Effendi” (V, 1966, pp.395-396).
