Teqeja Dervish Hatixhe

  Rr. Dervish Hatixhe     more than a year ago
Dedicated to the female Bektashi saint Dervish Hatixhe (1798-?), the Tirana Florence Nightingale who nursed people through a cholera epidemic. After her death, a tekke was founded near her grave. It miraculously survived the Hoxha regime and is still visited by people of different faiths, especially women. A corridor leads past a soot-blackened candle room to where the graves of Hatixhe, members of her family and a former servant can all be seen.
