Friday photo: Sufi Dancing in Cairo

Events, Nightlife, Photo Friday, Things to Do — By Pharaonick on March 26, 2010 at 4:20 pm

This is a photo of the free Sufi dancing show that takes place at Wikalet al-Ghouri in Cairo every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. The show starts at 8.30 pm, though there are only 250 tickets so it’s best to arrive when the doors open at 6.30 pm.

The show is admittedly touristy, though it is also spectacular: by far the best you can see in Egypt, unless you are lucky enough to stumble upon a Sufi order at one of the moulids (local festivals).

Trippy-swirly psychedelic spinning for God – you can’t get better than that!
