Yilanli Kilise - cave church, Ihlara, Cappadocia

17 vots
The Ihlara Valley is a deep canyon, cut into the rock by the small river Melendiz Suyu. Inside the valley is the small river and a lot of greenery. The walls of the valley contain many cave churches, chapels and monastries. Some of them with colourful wallpaintings of different styles. One of the best preserved chapels is the Yilanli Kilise (church with the snake) from the 9th century. The church is named after a heavily damaged painting with snakes sourrounding some sinners.
