Like the peaks of monks’ caps, several cones not far from the Selime Kale contain another complex, called Selime 7. Selime 7 has two courtyards and a church placed prominently at the complex’s center. Nearby, two funerary chapels—small barrel-vaulted halls with sanctuaries at the east end and graves cut into the floor—are carved into a single cone.
