It’s speculated that this is St. Paul’s church, but under good understanding being this is the remains of one of few Christian Churches in the area. Therefore the logic that St. Paul would have been here is precise. Entry fee is 5-10 lira. There are information kiosks inside and out of the church. The grounds have a small garden with ornamental pieces of pillars within it. The roof is red clay tile which looks like Spanish tile, and there are the remains of what looks like a mini steeple or bell tower on the roof. The church has windows in the shape of crosses and a very decretive door on the side which used to be the main entrance. The church is surrounded by a brick wall and has a large gate next to a water well located in the back corner. Inside the church it is very decorative. But closer view will show that it has been restored to look like this.The frescos, gold accents, and even marble pillars, have all been painted quite professionally to look real. So a huge effort has taken place to make this building appear as St. Paul’s private Church of worship, you’ll have to visit it and be the judge! Normally there are local women venders outside the grounds selling anything from scarfs to bread.
