Vaftizci Yahya Church

Vaftizci Yahya Church
(Church of Saint John the Baptist)
It is located at a high point in Cavusin Village. A part of its yard is damaged. It is estimated that the church showing early Byzantium structural characteristics, was constructed in 5th century. As the gaps in between the pillars were filled hard materials the size of the church can not be perceived well. Depending on the size and some architectural themes of sitting places the structure is claimed to be a basilica. Frescoes are almost destroyed. Some scenes can be seen if you look at it carefully. Among the visible scenes one at the right side of the door stands opposite of the apsis is important, that is the scene showing the Prophet Abraham with knife in his hand to sacrifice his son. This subject is only worked out at this church in Cappadocia.
