  • For now, we only have to tour the outside. However, I want to see the inside by all means. I'm not sure if it might be published at Easter or birth of Icarus, as is often the Turkey church. I hope that the government and the church will adjust it in the future and it will be open to the public.

  • This neighborhood is a densely populated area of churches. I feel the atmosphere of Byzantine densely. In 1334, there was a record that this church already existed. After that, it seems to have become a monastery. It is built in a place like a semi-underground. There is a commentary board translated into several languages nearby.
