Basilica of St. John, was built in the 6th century, under emperor Justinian I & his wife Theodora over the supposed site of the St. John Apostle's tomb. At his crucifixion, Jesus asked his beloved disciple, John, to look after his mother. John and the Virgin Mary travelled to Ephesus between 38 and 47 AD and lived there. John who was buried here, is the John the Evangelist who is also known as the John the Apostle or John the Gospel writer. Basilica of St. John was the second largest church of Anatolia when it was actively used. The impressive ruins of the basilica are still visible. The basilica had a cross plan with six domes. Under the central dome was the sacred grave of St. John. Pilgrims have believed that a fine dust from his grave has magical and curative powers.
