Yilanli ( Snake ) Church  ( of St. Onuphorius )


Agacalti Church  -  Kokar Church  -  Yilanli Church  -  Sumbullu Church  -  St.George Church  


The main section is transversally rectangular and barrel vaulted, whereas the extended space to the south, which houses the graves, has a flat ceiling. The apse was hollowed out of the long wall on the left and the church was left uncompleted. The entrance to the church is from the north. Portraits of the respected saints of Cappadocia are on either side of the vault. The church dates back to the 11th century.


Scenes: Opposite the entrance is a portrait of Jesus holding the Bible in his left hand.  The donor of the church is pictured beside Jesus. On the east side of the vault are St. Onesimus, St. George and the Dragon, St.Theodore, and Helena holding the True Cross with her son Constantine the Great. On the west of the vault is the long haired, naked St. Onuphoius behind a palm tree, with St. Thomas in a sanctitying  position beside him, and St. Basil holding a book.
