 Edirne, which was the capital city of the Ottoman state for almost about a century, was a very old city described as the “hearth of veterans, the nazargah of the God, dârü’n-nasr, dârü’l-hilâfe”. Religious-architectural works and large number of dervish lodges and shrines established in the city which constituted the magnificence of Edirne, had very crucial effects on the spiritual life and the historical and social situation of the city. The poet of the 18th century, Karaferyeli Sar?cazâde Râmiz, who worked as a professor in Edirne, described each of the dervish lodge there by one couplet, in his masnavi (a poem written in rhyming couplets) titled as “Esâmî-yi Hânkâh-? Mahmiyye-i Edrene”. Poem is a short masnavi describing 43 dervish lodges, zaviyes (Islamic religious school or monestry) and shrines belonging mostly “Halvetî, Nak?î, Kadîrî, Gül?enî, Sa‘dî, Mevlevî, Rifâî, Cemâlî, Celvetî, U??âkî, Kazerûnî and Zeynî” dervish orders existing at that period of time. In this article, text determination of this masnavi which is comprised of 94 couplet, is conducted and information is provided about the names of the dervish lodges and shrines mentioned in the text, their dervish order affiliations, and addresses and their current situations and the couplets describing the dervish lodges are explained.
