A fairy chimney is a conical rock formation typically found in the Cappadocia region of Turkey. It consists of a cap of hard rock resting on a cone-shaped pinnacle of softer rock. In Cappadocia, houses have been carved from these formations, and they make a popular tourist destination.
Cappadocia is one of the places mentioned in 1 Peter 1:1 and one of the places we take just about everyone who comes to visit. There are old cave churches and old underground cities scattered throughout the region. We stay in hotels that have been carved from the rock as well. It really is an amazing place.
