From the outside it looks very good and intresting,but when you go inside its very upsetting,it is just a small room,you have to pay 5turkish liras to get in,might sound small but believe me its not worth it

This uniquely shaped church is well sign posted off the main road from Goreme to Goreme Open Air Museum. It is actually located on the Zemi Valley trail and it takes around 10 minutes to reach it. Although we have seen many churches on this trip, the detached shape of this one is different to any we have seen before.... More

The trail led to this church was nice, since you can have an above view of the valley. But the church was closed/locked, although there were several signs saying it was opened.

I think the main point is to not to visit the interior of this conical church but to go on the side trail to this church, which starts on the left of the Zemi Hike. After a short but steep climb you are rewarded with views of phallic and pyramidal hoodoos as well as the conical rock church with a... More

If you go to the open-air museum in Goreme, you see most of the churches, and better ones than this one. This one is noteworthy because it's in a stand-alone "cone" vice inside the cliff wall. Worth it, but you have to buy a separate entry ticket to get in. Takes 10 minutes from the time you pull in to... More

this church is located outside the goreme open air museum, the track to get to this place is beautiful and you will get 1st impression of the whole area, both the church before you see the others at the open air museum complex, and also the spectacular view since this church is located on top of the hill....worth a visit.
