Konakli (Misthi) Church Located in the village of Konakli, about 40 km from the center of Nigde province, the Konakli Saint Basil Church boasts a basilical plan constructed from basalt stone. The central nave features an artex roof while each side nave is covered by five small domes. Two piers with four columns are positioned by the entrance to the hall leading inside, and stone-topped columns surround the entrance. The front facade of the Konakli (Misthi) Church is adorned with a tree of life motif emerging from the vase on the decorative pier near the roof. Two small arches are positioned at an angle on either side of the larger arch to balance out its size, with a thick molding rising gradually upwards to crown the facade with style. The window arches are decorated with decorative piers and blind arches at their tops, and an inscription and date of 1844 are visible on the door next to the main entrance. Despite being located in a remote village, this church is one of the largest in Anatolia. In 2012, Orthodox Patriarch Bartolomeus celebrated mass here with 500 attendees from around the world. The church is currently being restored and will soon be open to visitors.
