In Roman times, Christianity spread rapidly in the second century and began a major struggle with Christians against priests who worshipped idols. In Cappadocia, many underground cities built by Christians as refuges or places of worship came to the surface because of this situation.

The Kepez Underground City, located in the borders of Kepez Village and tied to Mucur, the administrative district within Kirsehir, is west of Ankara highway. It's 14 km away from Ankara highway and 10 km away from Aksaray highway. The Kepez Underground City is one of the most orderly underground cities at Cappadocia; therefore it has always drawn visitors' attention.

It consists of three groups of living rooms, all rectangular shapes with galleries and tunnels surrounding them.
