This church is the biggest collection of caves and can be seen from the road.

This really looks other-world and very not like any other religious meeting places you will see.

Looking from the top sections of the church back to the road.

Its incredible to think that these incredible looking rock formations has a serious role, as a meeting place, where baptisms happened, and people were to taught how to preach the gospel to the local areas and beyond.

Its worth seeing this place and the other significant places with a tour guide.   Mine only cost me £25 for the day which included lunch and all admission fees.

This church dates from 313AD, more here:-
