Our tour guide told us not to use any tripods when taking photographs - apparently professionals are banned from taking photos. Unfortunately I wanted to use big zoom and using a monopod would help so ... I went to ask Jandarma (a village police as they are called locally) whether it was ok to put the camera on it. The guy turned out to be a professional photographer in his normal life but doing his national service as a jandarma. He gave me a quick lesson in photography as well as added information about the Museum and Pigeon valley which he also patrols.
The history and views are phenomenal and local people (even when at work) are very happy to share their knowledge and proudly talk about their heritage.
The churches within the complex are full of history so take your time to explore them - my favourite one was the Apple Church followed by Dark Church (entry to this one for an extra admission fee).
