The Greek city was close to an ancient center of worship of a native goddess of nature, which was assimilated with the Greek Artemis and around 550 BC. a large temple was built. Croesus, who captured the city, contributed to this. The common Christian belief is that Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ, came to Ephesus with the Holy Loan after the Crucifixion of Christ and the two lived the rest of their lives near the city. St. John or the Apostle Loan was the writer of the fourth Gospel and the book of Revelation. The Gospels agree that he is the son of Zebedee; together with his brother Jacob, they began to follow Jesus while fishing in the lake of Galilee.

Finally, the calcium carbonate in the water slowly settles like a soft jelly and eventually hardens into limestone. Hot springs are not Pamukkale only attraction. Above the cascading pools, you will find the remains of an ancient city. The city of Hierapolis was a Greco-Roman and Byzantine city above the castle.
