Crooked Stone  Church is 38 km (23 mile) far to Aksaray centurum. The church, which is located in Ihlara valley, is presumed to have been built in the Xth century. The fact that Eğritaş Church, one of the oldest churches of the valley, was built in dedication to Virgin Mary is understood from the epitaph in the east of the building. In the church which has been carved as single naved, there are also burial chambers. In the church on whose walls there are frescoes one more beautiful from the other,  the depictions of Jesus sitting between two Angels, Virgin Mary between two Angels and six bishops, Joseph’s Dream,  the Flight into Egypt, Baptism and Entry into Jerusalem are displayed.
