On our recent trip to the wonderful Cappadocia we came across probably one of the most unique police stations in the world.

Zelve lies between Göreme and Avanos and has its own Open Air Museum – a smaller version of the one actually in Göreme.

However, we think the best thing about Zelve is this.

Yes, the local Jandarma have a fairy chimney as their office! How cool is that?

There was no-one home when we were there which casts doubt on the official sign that says ‘Jandarma Security Post’.

Of course we peeped through the window and there was a table, chairs and a filing cabinet inside so it is clearly in use.
