The former Armenian Monastery of the All-Saviour at Çukurçayır, some 3km south-east of Trabzon. The interior of the 15th century church is notable for its extensive wall paintings of biblical scenes, thought to date from the late 17th-early 18th centuries.
Seen here in use as a hay barn. Later roofless, more recent photos show a metal sheet roof protecting the interior from the elements.
View towards the east end of the nave.
