Long Description:
One of the most famous (and photographed) nature's balanced rock of Cappadocia area is located at Pasabagi and it's part of natural roof of medieval church of St Simeon. As other similar rocks of local area is the rocking stone from hard Basalt, which "stands" on soft tuff.

Pasabag in Cappadocia is located on the road to Zelve, coming from Goreme or Avanos. Highly remarkable earth pillars can be seen here, in the middle of a vineyard, hence the name of the place which means: the Pacha's vineyard. Pacha means "General", the military rank, in Turkish and it is a very common nick name. This site is also called Monks Valley. The name was derived from some cones carved in tuff stones which stand apart. Currently, there is a vineyard and a number of tuff cones standing right next to the road.
