The mushroom shaped rock needles of Paşabaǧ Valley have made it one of Cappadocia’s most famous landmarks. In the early Byzantine period a religious community who were disciples of St Simeon Stylites (a 4th century monk who spent his life on top of a pillar, in northern Syria) devoted their lives to their own stylite practices here. Instead of pillars though, they carved monk cells high up in the pinnacles to lead a hermitic life of prayer. One of these monk cells can still be visited.
