Asklepion , a famed ancient medical center built in honor of Asklepios, the god of healing.It access via the Sacred Way and leads to the courtyard and monumental gate.See the altar, the Emperor’s room, domed Temple of Asklepios, an underground tunnel, pools and fountain, library and Roman Theatre.

So, this is the entrance of the medical center that we will walk in to explore what they have inside.

Finally, I am inside :)

It is because it has already maybe more than 1000 years history, so the rocks due to the climate, they were some cracked.

Turkey's Trip

The theater of Ephesus.

Many Pop stars like Elton John came here to held his concert last few years which mean this theater is still being used until now.

After the government of Turkey don’t allowed any concert to be held at the theater here, it is because the strong bass of sound of the concert may damage the rocks and they decide to preserve them.
