Not far past the commercially run well organised Goreme Open Air Museum is a small signpost pointing to the Aynali Kilise (church) in a cave. Opposite of commercial. A friendly curator sits outside and sells entry for 5 TL.He provides a torch each and is happy to chat. Climb up inside just fascinating. Very quiet.

It seemed like an old church that was destroyed . It seem that it was done during the old wars . It was persevered like that since than

Shortly before the last, frighteningly steep, descent to the open air museum, there is a sign indicating a rather nice though plain church: the Aynalı church. . Apart from the church there are several other rooms that one can reach climbing through the rocks. It is named Symmetrical Church on some sites, ayna meaning mirror as in my dictionary it is translated as "paneled", and the front has noticeable panels (though they are not unique to this church).

Fantastic ancient monastery with small tunnels and wonderful paintings. We were one of the few people there. Guard gave us a flash light and we had so much fun crawling in dirt and climbing carved rock staircases. We felt like Indiana Jones not knowing what was at the end of the tunnel.

This is a wonderful place to visit. It is not as crowded as the rest of the destinations but it’s definitely worth your time. It is an amazing experience. It is exciting and there is enough there to see that it’s worth your time and trip. Make sure you go there.

The paintings are very special within narrow tunnels and many chambers, still stunning surroundings and beautiful architecture. Book a guide if you can it will be so useful!

I'm glad I have visited this place with a tour guide, so now I know a lot about the history of this area. It's important to broaden your horizons, and visiting such places is just to the point!

We found this by accident, and what a gem it is. This may be one of the oldest churches in Goreme, possibly dating from the Roman period. It gets its name from the crude symmetry of the Iconoclastic reductionist designs in the nave. The real beauty of it is that there are several secret passages, and the guide will provide a torch for you to explore them. Each room could be sealed by a blocking stone. He also pointed out a wine press and stalls for for beehives. A lovely church, worth the visit for the chat with the guide alone.

The church itself isn’t much different than others in Göreme - what makes this one special is it’s multiple chambers and narrow tunnels you can access. The entrance is 10TKL per person and you’ll be provided with a lamp.

To avoid if you are claustrophobic.

Wandered in here after visiting the open air museum, keep going up the hill and along the road 600m or so and it is sign posted on your right. It cost 5tl entry, nothing special in the art, but it is fun to explore the tunnels. This must have been a bit of a strong hold with several round stone doors at different points to keep maurauders out.
Probably not worth visiting if you have mobility problems.
