The short climb went well until an idiot decided to remove and pull up the ladder, therefore preventing the ascending visitors to continue climbing... and others to go down. Although we never made it to the top, we assumed the view would have been quite spectacular. Perhaps another time.

It feels silly to rate something so historic as only average but the pathway up there is not just in poor condition but dangerous. There is trash everywhere and the main Chambers of the church stink of what can only be urine. There is a good view when you get there though (see photos). There are no signs to explain the history of the place. It will take some work but this could be a very good site. Once the work is complete I think it would be justified to charge an entrance fee. That being said, if you want to visit now be prepared for some steep stairs, and a dirty and dangerous pathway! Recommended to the adventurous!

This church is a up a steep set of stairs and then along a cliff edge. It is really only for those who are fit. And at the end of the day it is marginally worth it but not outstanding

To me this was not worth the trip at all At least u didn’t have to pay for any entrance fee But to get here u had to go a bit out of your way to get there So if u ask me was not worth the trip The church is decaying and there is nothing being done at all to preserve this place So if u ask me unless u have an abundance of time , other things more worth to see

This church (Vaftizci Yahya Kilisesi) is in the small town of Cavusin. When you are in the town look up to the East and you can easily spot this church. As you walk up the hill towards it you will be running through the gauntlet of vendors - just politely decline and visit them after. At the end of the uphill road you will eventually see a sign for the church on your left, follow the steep stairs up and you will find yourself turning back towards the town again but climbing. Along the way you will pass many caves, some occupied, some are hotels, and some are vacant and for sale - it is interesting to see that local residents still use the caves to this day. As you go near the top the path will narrow and eventually round the corner and you will find yourself at the church. Do be careful as part of the church has crumbled and the path to get to the foremost part of the church has some very narrow section with no handrail. But if you do get to the front you will be rewarded with a beautiful view below and around.
