A Baptism ceremony has taken place at a chapel located near the ancient Temple of Apollo in Turkey's southwestern Aydın province for the first time after 150 years.

According to reports, the son of Assyrian businessman Enlil Simon Afram was baptized at the 300-year-old chapel, located in Aydın's Didim district.

The Metropolitan Bishop of Mardin and Diyarbakır Saliba Özmen performed the baptism.
