Virgin Mary House

Ugur Yavuzturk
The House is located on top of BulBul Mt. three miles south of Ephesus. It is believed that Mary together with St. John the Evangelist came to Ephesus and built a house for Mary on top a mountain isolated from the city to hide from Roman soldiers after the persecution of Jesus. The House was restored in 1951 and opened for prayers and pilgrimage.
