We were on a tour for the day from Bodrum and this was one of our stops. We didn't really have to wait in any long lines. There was a short line that moves very quickly, it's a very, very small house, and yes, no picture-taking allowed. Very quiet inside while you kind of pay your respects. The surroundings are peaceful and it's a nice stop. I think if you are religious this may have more significance for you. The two things that were most interesting are: (1) the papers tied to the wall of wishes that people leave for the Virgin Mary and (2) the water that they hype as "being the same water Mary drank from". Hard to say, but really, we were there on a nice day and it was very peaceful.Just loved the whole day.

Being a Catholic I really enjoyed seeing where Mary lived. There was also a fountain where you could collect holy water to take with you.

If you are a "sensitive" you will truly enjoy the energy of Mother Mary's house and the surrounding area. You can start to feel the change in energy in the mountainous curves approaching the site. A Long beautiful drive ,but all well worth it.
