The history of Çavuşin, located in the very heart of the Cappadocia region, begins with the spread of Christianity in the region in 56 AD. 60 million years ago, Erciyes, Hasandağı and Göllüdağ’ın erupted by the erosion of water and wind erosion of lava and ashes, unprecedented fairy chimneys from this date on the region and settled in the Christianity of the monks began to use.
These monks left their places to escape from the Roman soldiers, they were inside the periwarias of the Sergeant and around them, and they dug the houses where they would be kept in danger. The people of the rapidly Christianizing region have been able to shelter in these small houses for a long time thanks to the reserves and water cisterns in which they must be kept.
They have performed their prayers in these houses by digging small chapels into them. For their inefficient soil, they also used pigeon breeding by digging pigeon houses on the rock slopes. In 334 AD, the Eastern Roman empire decided to have a council to choose the most authentic bible for accepting Christianity as official religion. Nepali (from Kırşehir) Greguor and Nasianus (Nevşehirli) Gregori from the Cappadocia region are sent to this meeting. The end of the meeting is considered the bible recommended by Catholic priests, and other pearls are destroyed. After this date, the monastery lives in Cappadocia.
