Çarıklı (Sandals) Church
Léglise Çarıklı / Die Çarıklı-Kirche
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.
