Underground Church Frescoes in Cappadocia of Jesus

Underground Church Frescoes in Cappadocia of Jesus

A rock-carved underground church was uncovered by archaeologists recently in the Cappadocia region of Central Anatolia. The Turkish city is known for its unusual geography, replete with large cone-like formations known as “Fairy Chimneys”. These cones were underground havens for the early Christians living in the region. 1 Peter 1:1 makes mention of the city of Cappadocia being among the persecuted Christian communities of Asia Minor.

The historic church is part of an underground city that spreads over 360,000 sq.meters and includes 11 neighborhoods. Frescoes inside the church depict unique images of Jesus Christ, including him ascending to the heavens and fish falling from his hands. Archaeologists expect further scenes to emerge as the excavation continues.
