Biblical Ephesus tour program

Christianity has a long history in Anatolia (Turkey), which is the birthplace of numerous Christian Apostles and Saints, such as Paul of Tarsus, Nicholas of Myra, Timothy, Polycarp of Smyrna and many others.
 
Two out of the five centers of the ancient Pentarchy are in Turkey: Constantinople (Istanbul) and Antioch (Antakya). Antioch was also the place where the followers of Jesus were called "Christians" for the first time in history, as well as being the site of one of the earliest and oldest churches, established by Saint Peter himself. For a thousand years, the Hagia Sophia was the largest church in the world.
 
Turkey is also home to the Seven Churches of Asia, where the Revelations to John were sent. Apostle John is known to have taken Virgin Mary to Ephesus in western Turkey, where she spent the last days of her life in a small house, known as the House of the Virgin Mary, which still exists today and has been recognized as a holy site for pilgrimage by the Catholic and Orthodox churches. The cave of the Seven Sleepers is also located in Ephesus.

Did you know that fact about Ephesus?
But did you know about the place outside of Ephesus called garbage heap (trash heap)? According to the historical records unwanted babies - mostly girls - due to the belief to the Artemis goddess (Artemis was the goddess of fertility both giving blessings to woman willing to have a child and also protecting from the child birth, as every third woman was likely to die during the child birth) were left in the isolated area to die. The most healthiest of them were picked up by the slave traders and used to be slaves or prostitutes.
