Goreme Open Air Museum is the largest attraction in Goreme. There are quite a lot of historical sites in the interior, and there are quite a lot of tourists. Many beautiful murals can't be photographed. Many of the interior murals have been destroyed by the early people, similar to the Turkish XXX to this tour. Even more, please remember to protect the common cultural heritage of mankind while visiting the tour. The scenic spot is still big. It takes about two hours for each hole to enter. There is a souvenir shop at the exit of the scenic spot. You can buy a souvenir. Is it a kind of memory for this scenic spot?

The Grammy Open Air Museum is the quintessence of Cappadocia, which has been condensed in the natural and human history of the Cappadocia region and has gathered more than 30 cave churches and has been awarded the World Cultural Heritage.
The churches were originally built by Christians who migrated to the Cappadocia region to escape political persecution. They chose to hollow the mountain to build a church for the sake of the eyes and ears, and there were already mottled colored murals inside.
Although these murals are not perfect, some look a bit tender, but each chapel has a beautiful legend that was left in the past and has a high artistic appreciation.
Cappadocia, which is known as the Rocky Fort in Turkey, is full of all kinds of rock formations, and this area is not only the natural landscape of the moon landscape, but it is really amazing here. There are many churches that are large and small.
When you see them, I am afraid to break the "gothic spires, colorful mosaic glass windows" in your mind.
On the contrary, everything is different from what you imagined. Just as the Cave Hotel is famous here, the "Cave Church" is equally impressive. The
Grammy Open Air Museum is home to numerous cave churches. Although the entrance is unobtrusive and ugly, the churches in the church still retain those old and beautifully decorated murals.
For the purpose of protecting the grottoes inside the grotto, the church can't take pictures, so we can't show the inside of the church, we can only experience it personally.
Cappadocia, because it is located in a remote mountainous area, has a strange and desolate landscape and has always been a refuge for religious struggles.
The early Roman Empire promoted polytheism and brutally suppressed Christianity that rose in the Palestinian territories at the beginning of the epoch. At that time, the first believers of Jesus Christ, represented by the famous apostle St. Paul, left Jerusalem and came to Cappadocia, where the terrain was in danger, suitable for hiding, the establishment of the first Christian district of Asia Minor, and the construction of the church. At the beginning of the 4th century AD, widely spread Christianity formed a powerful political force. Emperor Constantine and his successor, Theodosius, realized that Christianity was an emerging force that could be used to consolidate imperial rule. Therefore, they changed their policies, first to declare freedom of religious belief, and then to define Christianity as the state religion.
The most concentrated in the Cappadocia Cave Church is the Goreme Open Air Museum, which condenses the nature, history and humanities of Cappadocia and brings together more than 30 cave churches and monasteries of different sizes.
These churches were originally built by Christians who migrated to Cappadocia by avoiding political persecution. In order to hide their eyes and ears, they hollowed out the mountain to build a church, and the interior was engraved with colorful murals.
The famous churches include Apple Church, Santa Barbara Chapel, Snake Church, Dark Church, Tokali Church and many more.
I only read the introduction in the book before, and I am looking forward to coming to Goreme to explore these cave churches 2000 years ago and appreciate the artwork of God.
