before 1924,many greek people lived here:more than 50 churches,but most of them were destroyed.
below the village,after st gregory of naziance church (works of restoration ,oct 2004),around 50 troglodyte churches.
after 6km,left side,in the middle of fields,on the road from guzelyurt to nigde.
this 6th.cent church is one of the oldest churches of whole cappadocia.
the only one built:I mean,all churches are troglodyte ones,excepted this one!
in very poor condition,it's hight time to visit it,before it's too late!
what a pity,cappadocia is forsaking its cultural heritage! (MORE ON TRAVELOGUE)
