Anatolia belongs to the earliest Christian areas. Under the Ottoman sultans it was nearly impossible to build new churches. This changed around 1830 and ended with WW I and the Greek-Turkish peoples exchange in 1923. Since then most of the churches and hundreds of years old Byzantine frescoes are left for destruction.
