In history, some important states living in this region include the Hittites, Persians, Romans, Byzantines, Seljuks and Ottomans.

The borders of the Cappadocia region include Kayseri, Nevsehir, Kirsehir, Aksaray and Nigde to five Turkish provinces.

Cappadocia Land of Beautiful Horses 

This name comes from the Cappadocia Kingdom, which was established in the region in the past. Its old name was Katpatuka, meaning Persian language '' Land of Beautiful Horses ''.

The Persians controlled the area remotely. The Roman emperor decided to make a state and ruled it as a kingdom. Cappadocians had good relations with the Romans.

The Seljuks controlled the region after the Malazgirt war in 1071. Then the growing Ottoman took over. With the fall of the Ottoman Empire after the First World War, the Republic of Turkey was founded.

Christians in Cappadocia

The first Christians arrived in Cappadocia shortly after the resurrection of Christ and the birth of the Christian religion, and lived here for a long time. They established churches and monastic communities. They drew pictures and frescoes in underground cities and caves.

Islam came with the Seljuks and continued with the Ottomans. Both states built mosques, caravanserais, and madrasas that are still standing today.
