The view of Rose Valley is excellent from this village.

They could use the clays for their daily lives by shaping the clay by their hand on the spinning wheels.
DEVRENT VALLEY The ruins at Devrent are spread over three valleys, which also house several pointed fairy chimneys with large stems.
ÜRGÜP FAIRY CHIMNEYS The "fairy chimneys" with caps, mainly found in the vicinity of Ürgüp, have a conical-shaped body and a boulder on top of it. The cone is constructed from tufa and volcanic ash, while the cap is of a harder, more resistant rock such as lahar or ignimbrite. The fairy chimneys which are symbols of Ürgüp are called holy spirit chimneys. There is a mother, father and son fairy chimneys stay together.
CARPET FACTORY Every carpet, with its patterns, resembles a collection of messages, beliefs and symbols. Every pattern that is woven into a carpet is a picture of a feeling, a desire or a wish. So far as that every carpet represents a living history from the early ages to the present in which women have patiently and untiringly written their joys and sorrows in amazing codes and magic letters which are to be read line by line
