Those weren't clues. I have given none yet. But I will say that if you don't know, you will never guess it.

I am also looking for more than the country.

Surprisingly I didn't use this bit of information to find the answer. (Google Image search terms: natural pointed vertical erosion valley geologic formation. 4th page)

Assuming I'm correct.

Does this mean you or I am at bat?

While your answer is a bit more precise, I was looking for Cappadocia, so while Jeninga75's "Kappdokya" is the winner. Actually that is a misspelling, pronounced Kappa -do -chia. The last c has a cedil.

It's an absolutely fascinating place. Hundreds of the fairy chimneys have had caves carved into them. They were used as hiding places by the early Christians. There are many, many dwellings in the caves, churches, and even hotels.

Is it in Jerusilum? Not sure of proper spelling.

See the earlier posts - it is in Cappadochia which is now part of Turkey. In early Christian times it was known as Asia Minor. The church was persecutred for the first two centuries so it may have been used in those times.
