  The Tokali Kilise outside of Goreme
by Paul2001

The Tokali Kilise is just a fify metre walk from the entrance into the Goreme Open Air Museum. A visit to this ancient church is usually included amongst tours of the museum. This is probably the finest church that I visited in Cappadocia.
The Tokali Kilise was built in the 10th century and consists of two large and two smaller chambers, one of which is underneath the two larger chambers. The highlight of a visit to the church are the brilliant frescos that chronicle the life of Jesus Christ. They are as good an example of Byzantine art as you are going to see anywhere.
The church is open from 8am to 5pm and it is about $2.50 to go in.

Directions: Along the road to the Goreme Open Air Museum
