The church with a long history, there was no one when I went there. There was an old man next to the hut with a sign saying that he would charge for taking pictures. He kept staring at you. The whole thing was quite shocking. The rock was very huge.
The Dovecote Church is a very long church building. The building itself has gone through many years of history. Some auxiliary facilities of the church have been destroyed, and there are not many things left to visit.
[Cost-effective] feel the history
[Scenery] are historical sites
[Fun] Not bad
The church is on the way from Graham to the old town of Cavusin. It is the best example of Christianity preaching in Graham a thousand years ago. After thousands of years of ups and downs, it is still there.
Big dovecote. In fact, at the time, I didn't know that this was a big dovecote. I knew that the driver said that there was an old mosque and a church on it. The driver should have said it, but it was probably ignored by us. Asked if we were going to see it, we said to go. The mosque is a small piece below, and the church has to be climbed up. This mountain is relatively large, and it is full of empty caves, abandoned huts left by the old people. In fact, it reminds me of Mogao Grottoes. There are also many pigeons here~ the church is difficult to find because it is already in ruins and there is no sign. The reason why we felt confused "Where is this?" was that there were no visitors, and the other was that it was different from the pictures of the big dovecote we saw before. In fact, this is the back mountain. In the past, photos were taken from the front of the main road, but it was impossible to go up there.
Located on the road from Goreme to Avanos, a huge abandoned stone house, built against the mountain, visitors can climb up and down at will. From here, you can take a hike in Gulludere and Kizilcukur Vadisi. Next to the Dovecote Church is one of the oldest churches in Cappadocia, John the Baptist Church.
The Dovecote Church is located deep in the valley of Cappadocia. The church itself is relatively simple in shape, but it feels good to blend into the unique geographical environment around it and it is worth a visit!
