Geyikli Church is 22 km (13 mile) far to Nevsehir centurum. Inside the church, which is located in Zelve Valley and which has taken the name “geyikli church” (the church with deers) from the picture of a deer inside, the scantiness of the pictures draws our attention. The reason of this comes from the attitude of the people of the period took against the pictures even before the iconoclastic period that appeared in the 7th century. Moreover, the church, which attracts attention with the big cross embossments and the cross pictures on the ceiling, is as beautiful as the other churches of Avanos.
