House of Virgin Mary nearby Ephesus

Today House Virgin Mary stands on the tops of ”Bulbul Mountain” next to Ephesus Ancient City. House stands nine kilometers away from the city and that’s why many people believe, she chose this remote place to be safe, away from pagans in the city center. Also, it is so possible that she was with Saint John when she arrived here because like it says in the Holy Bible, Jesus left Mary to Saint John’s protection and it can not be thought that he would leave her alone in Jerusalem and come here alone.
