  • It is a rocky at the end of the Valley of Ihlara, 28 km from Aksarai. It was the home of the Hittite, Assyrian, Persian, Roman, Byzantine, civilizations even in the Ottomans. One of the most important aspects of Selime was that many leading clerics were educated there. It also functioned as a headquarters military region. Although the monastery dates back to the 8th and 9th centuries, the frescoes of the structure dates back to end of the 10th century and the beginning of the 11th century. The representations include the Ascension, the Annunciation and mother Mary. It is the largest religious building in Cappadocia with a size Church Cathedral type. And inside there are two rows of columns of rock, that impress.

  • It is a place should not be included in the tour, so private tour with. It was, as you ri歴 like history very interesting rock formations in the religious relics of the old left. Where are images of rock formations of Cappadocia, but actually has left the history of religious oppression in the past.
