6-7 storey rock mass to the left of the museum entrance is known as the
"Nunnery". The dining hall, kitchen and some rooms on the first floor,
together with the ruined chapel on the second level, can still be visited.
church on the third storey, which can be reached through a tunnel, has
a cruciform plan, a dome with four columns and three apses. The templon
on the main apse is rarely found in Göreme's churches. Besides the
fresco of Jesus, painted directly onto the rock, designs pained in red
can alse be seen.
different levels of the monastery are connected by tunnels, and "millstone
doors", such as those found in the underground cities, were used to close
off these tunnels in times of danger.
tunnels connecting the levels of the Monastery, to the right, have eroded
making it possible to only visit some of the ground floor rooms.
