Anaku lay on the road that connected Neapolis (Nevşehir) with Niğde in Cappadocia. The population of the settlement, as well as the ethnic and religious composition of its districts, was mixed. In the 18th century the unsatisfactory agricultural production led the Christian male inhabitants to earn their living as migrants, following a trend noticeable to many other Cappadocian settlements.
