Photographs of travel through Turkey.
Meryemana is a religious shrine near Ephesus. The faithful feel that the Virgin Mary lived in this house at the end of her life.

The story goes that, in the early 19th century, a German woman had visions of Mary and the exact location of her house near Ephesus. The details of this vision led to the ruins of a building. The building seen here is obviously some interpretation of what the house might have looked like.


I had never heard anything of this story.
