Ephesus proudly houses one of the seven ancient wonders of the
world; the Temple of Artemis. The city is dedicated to her and
has many fascinating buildings.The precise date of the city's
foundation is not
known but legend said that the first Efes was founded by Women
Warriors of the Amazon in the 14th century BC and later inhabited
by lonians in the 11th century BC after the first settlement
of the Anatolian's natives, the Lelegians. In a short time the
city became very important. After 133 BC it became a Roman province
and during the reign of Augustus it became the trade center
of Asia.On Bulbuldagi (Mt. Nightingale) one can find the small
house built for the Virgin Mary (9 kms from Seljuk) when St.
John brought her to Ephesus after Christ's death. She spent
her last days in that house. Today it is a place of Pilgrimage
for Christians and also visited by Muslims, and is officially
sanctioned by the Vatican.Every year on August the 15th, a commemoration
ceremony is held there. With all the civilizations that have
passed through Ephesus, the remains take one or two days to
