Takia of Abdulqadir Gilaniته‌كیه‌ی شێخ عبدالقادر گه‌یلانی

This easy-to-find Sufi takia of the Kasnazan order is a great spot to start learning about Sufism in the region.

It is said the Sheikh Abdulqadir Gilani prayed here for seven years, seldom eating. There is a spring whose water is said to nourish and suppress the appetite. The place is kept by Kasnazan Sufis.


Visitors come to pay respect at the cave, meet a Sufi elder for a prayer, have their festive Friday gatherings, or take the sacred water.
