Since finalizing restorations to the Wekalet E ghuri in October 2005, it has become a hot-spot for organizing cultural events; the most popular being the bi-weekly El Tannoura dance performance.
The performance is similar to the more commonly known whirling dervishes; however this version of the indigenous dance incorporates instruments and other additional elements.
