The Church with Sandals

The Church with Sandals Date   The Church with Sandals Cappadocia
The Church with Sandals The name of the church refers to a footprint in the floor of the southern transept, which is believed to be a contemporary replica of the imprint of Christ in the sanctuary of Ascension in Jerusalem. The frescos are much damaged except for the Hospitality of Abraham in the eastern tympana, which is perhaps the best preserved mural in the Valley of Göreme.

The facade has been destroyed by erosion and the present entrance is on the left side of the northern transept. The church has only two columns. Three altars are still extant, featuring seats in each apse. The vacant graves in the floor were ransacked by robbers of the past.
