St George Yilanli Church, Cappadocia

St George Church (Yilanli Church) is located in Soganli Valley, Cappadocia. The icons date back to the 14th century. The themes evident here are quite unique, for example on the roof is depicted the Ancient of Days, not evident in other Churches in Cappadocia. The Church is named after St George due to a depiction of St George on horseback fighting a snake and wolves.
