Seven Sleepers is one of the great tourist attraction of the city which is immensely popular with both Christians and Muslims. According to the saying of a Christian legend, It was around 250 AD, when Christians were being fiercely persecuted by the ruler of the city. But seven young men were refused to reject their faith and offered their goods to the poor and went to a mountain cave to pray where they ultimately fall asleep. The emperor of that time had the cave walled for them so that he doesn’t escape and let them die inside. Therefore, 200 years later when the cave was reopened, they were found in the cave sleeping. Then they got up from sleep and came out of the streets of Ephesus and marched on so that they can do the worship of Christ without any fear and interruption.
