The transient nature of greatness is rarely as clearly displayed as it is in the Ephesus, a city once renowned throughout the ancient world as a major trading port, a metropolis of 250.000 inhabitants and a religious and cultural center. It was also the home of one of the seven wonders of the Ancient World, monumental temple of Artemis, known as Diana for Romans. Ephesus holds an important place in the history of early Christian church as it is here that St. Paul preached and it was to the Ephesians that he addressed some of his memorable teachings. Some 400 year after St. Paul’s visits a great Ecumenical council assembled here to hold heated theological arguments and lay down the law on important point’s of Christian doctrine.
Pamukkale means “Cotton Castle”. This amazing site looks just like balls of cotton wool cascading down the terraces of this naturel wonder. Bathe in the hot thermal springs which are said to contain healing preoperties to soothe away those aches and pains some of the terraces are now protected by government order to preservethis magnificent wonder for future generations.
