A team of Turkish archaeologists have found an early Christian church in an underground settlement near Nevsehir, in the Central Anatolia Region of Turkey.

The archaeologists have dated the church to the 5th century CE. They discovered the church in a large underground city that the scientists found in March 2015, as sci-news website mentions.

“The frescoes in this church show the rise of Jesus the Christ into the sky and the killing of the bad souls,” Hasan Ünver, the mayor of Nevsehir, told theAnadolu Agency and the English-language newspaper Hürriyet Daily News.
