Egritas Church, Cappadocia

Egritas Church, is located in Ihlara Valley, Cappadocia, modern day Turkey. The collapse of the barrel vaulted structure and the wooden floor exposed the room of graves, which is equal in size to the structure above. According to some researchers the frescoes date back to the 9th to 11th centuries AD. On an inscription on the east wall of the Church, it is mentioned that the Church is dedicated to the Virgin Mary.
