What people are saying:

The Eski Monastery is an ancient cave monastery, about 10 kilometers east of Nidai City, was discovered in 1963. Because the early Christians belonged to heretics in Turkey, they had to hide here in order to avoid persecution. In the towering main church, there are gorgeous Byzantine frescoes from the 7th to 11th centuries AD. In the picture of the Virgin and Child in the apse, Mary has a tall figure with a Mona Lisa smile. It is said that this is the only surviving statue of the smiling Virgin.
