The House of Mother Mary (House of Virgin Mary)

According to the Gospel of John, when the soldiers crucified Jesus and Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, “Dear woman, here is your son,” and to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” From that time on, this disciple took her into his home.

The Third Ecumenical Council held in Ephesus  in 431 A.D. proclaimed Jesus Christ as the incarnate of word of God and Mary as the Theotokos, Mother of God. The council declared that Apostle John brought Mother Mary to Ephesus . They called Ephesus , the city of Mother Mary.

The house of Mother Mary was found in 19th century by a group of investigators who were inspired by the revelations of a German nun. Foundation and lower part of the walls were still standing and upper part of the walls and roof were built later. A red paint line divides the original and new walls. A part of the foundation structure is from 1st century, but the rest of the original structure is from 6th century A.D.
