Rock Formation (Cappadocia) - 5

Cappadocia is located at central Turkey. It is a very interesting place with honeycomb hills and Phallic boulders of otherworldly beauty. It was formed by ancient volcanic soft ash, molded by millennia of rain and river flow. The large caves were utilized as the shelter, in fact, many refugee, Christians and Jews had been hiding there for a long time to avoid the persecution during the period of Christian Intolerance of Roman Empire. There are many ancient churches with fresco and painting on the walls still are well preserved.
