Gheorghe Doja was executed in 1514, in Timișoara, but no one knows the exact place. According to the tradition, meanwhile Doja was tortured and agonized, the Jesuitical monks and the serfs were singing religious songs and they saw on the sky the figure of Virgin Mary.

In that place was initially put on a pillar the image of the Virgin, which remained there during the Turkish tenure. After several variants of the monument, the present chapel was built in 1906 according to plans of Székely László. Under a Neo-Roman canopy supported by 6 granite pillars can be found the statue of Virgin Mary, made of Carara marble.
