El Nazar Church is 17 km (10 mile) far to Nevsehir centurum. El Nazar Church is located on the Goreme – Open Air Museum road and in the Gorkundere Valley. It is one of the most interesting structures of the region, carved into a tent-shaped rock and in the centre of the attraction of tourists. The floor of the church is completely destroyed and opened to visitors after an intensive renovation work. The frescoes in El Nazar Church are very important by beginning the portrayal from the childhood of Jesus until the risen of Christ by chronological.

Despite the erosion, the frescoes of El Nazar which are in a big harmony with the ambient are well-preserved. Also there is a depict of Jesus ascending into heaven on a rainbow in the middle dome of the church. However, the Emperor Constantine and his mother Helen’s figures worth a visit for a visual feast.
