The Eskigümüş rock cut monastery off the Kayseri-Niğde road near to the city of Niğde in Turkey. Eskigümüş is famed for having what is believed to be the only fresco with a smiling Theotokos. As the monastery was only recently rediscovered by western Europeans, it was able to escape the vandalism common among many of the churches and monasteries in Cappadocia.

Bor Stele is also known as Warpalawas Stele after the king's name. It was first reported to be seen in Bor but it is said that stele was originally found in 1860 during the excavation for building a house in Kemerhisar in Niğde. The stele was in two piece and restored to one, however scholars believe the restoration to be incorrect as it has given too much space in between the two pieces.
