Selcuklu Evi Cave House Special Class
Yunak Mahallesi P.K. 55
The Seljuk empire developed a distinctive culture, with especially beautiful architecture and design. Their architecture survived the decline, warfare and instability and continued to flourish long after their sultanate was dissolved.
Selcuklu Evi is a fine example of Seljuk architecture. This antique house has been lovingly restored by hand. The local craftsmen of Ürgüp spent two years to complete this restoration.
Each block was quarried from the local area and then manually sculptured and leveled before becoming part of Selcuklu Evi.
As much of the original house has been preserved although many years of decay and erosion had left limited resources. Each motif and impression on the stones has a story and that is why this restoration is so unique.
Situated in a small lane surrounded by local homes and gardens this area has panoramic views of rock hewn caves and the old village of Ürgüp.
