Our day trip to Ephesus began with breakfast at Artemis Restaurant in Sirince. Sirince was a delight; an old mountaintop Greek village, hillsides dotted with orchards that are part a a thriving wine industry. I could have spent the entire day here visiting the shops and the venders in their bazzar. The House of Virgin Mary was our next stop. This is a Christian and a Muslin shrine. The chapel is built upon the original foundation. Ephesus was once the world's second largest city. It's now a 4,000 year-old open-air museum. The Celsus Library was the third largest library. Excavation at Ephesus has been going on for over 150 years.

The Library of Celsus is an ancient Roman building in Ephesus, Anatolia, now part of Selçuk, Turkey. The building was commissioned in the 110s A.D. by a consul, Gaius Julius Aquila, as a funerary monument for his father, former proconsul of Asia Tiberius Julius Celsus Polemaeanus,[1][2] and completed during the reign of Hadrian, sometime after Aquila's death.[3][4] The library is considered an architectural marvel, and is one of the only remaining examples of a library from the Roman Empire. The Library of Celsus was the third-largest library in the Roman world behind only Alexandria and Pergamum, believed to have held around twelve thousand scrolls.[5] Celsus is buried in a crypt beneath the library in a decorated marble sarcophagus.[6][7] The interior measured roughly 180 square metres (2,000 square feet).[8]

The interior of the library and its contents were destroyed in a fire that resulted either from an earthquake or a Gothic invasion in 262 C.E.,[9][7] and the façade by an earthquake in the tenth or eleventh century.[10] It lay in ruins for centuries until the façade was re-erected by archaeologists between 1970 and 1978.[11]

Virgin Mary´s house is one of the holiest places in Turkey.

It is a Catholic and Muslim shrine located near Ephesus, in the city Selcuk inTurkey.

The house of Virgin Mary was discovered in the 19 th century by following the descriptions of the blind roman german cathlic nun Anne Catherine Emmerich (1774–1824). In a dream Emmerich's saw the the house the Apostle John had built in Ephesus for Mary, the mother of Jesus, where she had lived to the end of her life and descriped it to people.

That lead a team to start searching for the house of Virgin Mary in Turkey - and they found it!

Archaeologists, who have examined the area, dates most the building from the 6th or 7th century but its foundations are much older and may well date from the 1st century AD, which is the time of Virgin Mary.

To enter the area you need to go through a police control and pay 20 tl. You are allowed 3 minuts with the shrine and after that you can explore the area around the house or go visit Ephesus, which our next video is about.

This place of pilgrimage visited by thousands of tourists every year, maintains its holiness for the Moslems as well as for the Christian world. People believing in the godly qualities of the Virgin Mary came here and drinking from the water believed to be sacred they make wishes in the mystic and quite atmosphere of Mount Aladag. The House of Virgin Mary is 9 km from Selcuk. It is located on Mount Bülbül at a distance. 4 or 6 years after Jesus' death, St. It is known that John brought the Virgin Mary to Ephesus. In 1891, Lazarist priests, upon the dream of German nun A.Katherina Emmerick, revealed that this house was the house where the Virgin Mary spent her last days. This event has been a brand new discovery in the world of Christianity and has shed light on the whole world of religion. This cross-planned and domed structure was later restored. After the visit of Pope Paul VI in 1967, rituals are held every year on the 15th day of August in the house, which is also considered sacred by Muslims, and these rituals attract great attention.
