The Domed Church, Cappadocia

The Domed Church, located in the Soganli Valley, Cappadocia, central Turkey, it is one of the most interesting Churches in the region. Most Churches in Cappadocia are built in the mountains, following a cave form. However, this Church looks like a Church from its exterior, mainly due to the fact that the dome is prevalent on the top, hence the name. It is two layered and its inner parts are decorated with frescoes, as most Churches in the region. The dome was built on four pillars. This Church took its final form in the 14th century.
