1. Çarıklı (Sandals) Church Marker
Inscription. English:
This two columned church (two other columns being in the form of pillars), is cross vaulted, and has three apses and four domes. The well preserved frescoes show the life of Jesus, hospitality of Abraham, and images of the saints and donors of the church. Although it resembles the Karanlık (Dark) and Elmalı (Apple) Churches, the scenes of Way of the Cross make this church different from the others. The figures are generally large. The footprints under the Ascension scene give the church its name, which means “with sandal”. The church dates back to the en of the 12th and the beginning of the 13th centuries.

The center dome houses a picture of Jesus the Pantocrator with the busts of angels in the insets. On the central apse is Deesis, on the north apse Mary and the baby Jesus, and on the south apse, a picture of St. Michael.

Scenes: Nativity, adoration of Magi, baptism, raising of Lazarus, transfiguration, entry into Jerusalem, betrayal, women at the tomb, anastasis, ascension and portraits of the saints.

gösteren tevrat sahnesi, aziz ve bani tasvirleri iyi muhafaza kilise’ye benzemekle beraber, İsa’nin çarmiha gidişi ve çarmıhtan alınış sahneleri kilisenin farklı ôzelliǧidir. Figürler genelde büyük ve uzundur.

İsa’nin göge yükseliş sahnesinin altında bulunan ayak izlerinden dolayı kiliseye ‘çarıklı kilise adı verildiǧi sanılmaktadır. Kilise 12. yüzyıl sonu, 13. yüzyılın başına tarihlenmektedir.

Ana kubbenin ortasında pantokrator İsa, madalyonlarda melek büstleri bulunmaktadır. Ayrıca ana apsiste deesis, kuzey apsiste meryem ve çocuk İsa, güney apsiste ise melek Michael tasviri yer alır.

Sahneleri: Doǧum, üç müneccimin tapınması, vaftiz Lazarus’un diriltilmesi, başkalaşım, kudüs’e giriş, ihanet, kadınlar boş mezar başında, İsa’nin göǧe çıkışı ve aziz tasvirleri.
