(Christian News Network) Government officials in Turkey recently approved a plan to preserve and reconstruct areas of the ancient and Biblical city of Ephesus.

The Selcuk Municipality Assembly said that part of the plan includes the creation of new walking lanes and gates leading into the city, making the area more visitor-friendly for tourists. The city will be divided up into various zones: agriculture, commerce and tourism. Digs for historical artifacts will continue in Ephesus as well — a first degree archaeological site.
