Nunnery Monastery is 17 km (10 mile) far to Nevsehir centurum. Rahibeler Monastery is a six floor building. There is a dining hall, kitchen and some rooms on the first floor, a ruined chapel with a fresco on the second floor, and on the third floor a church which can be reached through a tunnel. Except the northeastern corner of the church roof, the dome and the walls have geometrical decorations painted with red paint directly onto the rock.

The different floors of the monastery are connected by tunnels, and “millstone doors” were used to close off these tunnels in times of danger. There is “Monastery of Priests” across the “Nunnery”. Only a few rooms on the ground floor can be visited because of the damage between the tunnels that connect the floors.
