    The Sümela Monastery was built by carving rocks at the height of 300 meters in the Karadağ's Altındere Valley in the Maçka district of Trabzon. This valley is also known as the Virgin Mary valley. This valley offers nature, history and culture in one place to visitors. The Sümela Monastery is also on the UNESCO world heritage list.

    This historic site was closed in 2015 due to fears of landslides. After a year, in 2016, Turkey started doing restorations on the Sümela Monastery. This project lasted till 2020 when it partially was opened to visitors, but the restoration started back up and was continued till 2021. During this, the monastery hosted 340,000 visitors.

    Sümela, which has interior, exterior, aqueducts and environmental lighting, will offer a different beauty at night with its glittering facade on the steep slope. Provincial Culture and Tourism Director Tamer Erdoğan told Anadolu Agency (AA) that Sümela Monastery has a unique beauty due to its location.

    What our historians tell us about the Monastery is that most of this wonderful site was restored during the 18th century. Many of the large buildings of the monastery were added during the 19th century.

    The Sümela Monastery consists of several parts:
    the main rock church, several chapels, a kitchen, student rooms, a guesthouse, a library and a holy spring. The frescoes on the walls of caves and chapels are thought to belong to different periods, spanning from the 12th to the 19th centuries.

    This is your chance to visit one of the cultural centers of Turkey before the monastery goes under construction again!!! But i recommend checking the tourist websites and even google map to see if it's open on the day you are visiting. But be advised that even if you double-check, you can go to your destination to find out its actually closed ( this happened to me a bunch of times in Turkey)
