Jesus was 33 years old when he was crucified by the Romans in Jerusalem. Hz. Before taking his last breath, Jesus delivers his mother, Meryem, to his close friend, St. Jean. Saint Jean, thinking that Jerusalem could be dangerous for the Virgin Mary, brings him to Ephesus, one of the famous cities of that time. Legend has it that the Virgin Mary lived her last days on earth in a small stone cottage on Mount Koressos (Bülbüldağı, “Nightingale Mountain” in Turkish) to the south of Ephesus There is a very impressive Virgin Mary statue in the garden of the church and a baptismal pool in the middle. The house has been converted into a church and it is known that the history of the building using rubble stone and brick dates back to the 7th and 8th centuries.
