Who are we?
In 1996 we have lost Dr. Celaleddin Bakir Celebi, the 19th great-grandson of Mevlana (21stgeneration descendant) and the past "Celebi," the leader of the Mevlevi sect. He was the the 32nd Celebi to occupy the post. We prepared this site in memory of him. A special section of this web site is dedicated to Dr. Celebi and a selection of his writings. «more»
