Great photo opportunity

This place is great for photo shoots. Nice photos can be made through the window with cross and the Temple of mount.

A vey small place. It's a fifth century mosaic entrance. Jesus is said to have wept as he saw the doom of Jerusalem. It's a quite place, not too much to see. It was a ok visit

Little Chapel in the Mount of Olives. The west windown frames a stunning view of the old city. Safe, clean, views are really nice. Place to pray. It opens at 800 am. It closes at 1145 am and opens again at 230 pm until 500 pm..

We visited here whilst walking down the mount of olives, there is a wonderful view over the city and we stopped and had a very moving reading from our tour guide. We only got a brief glimpse inside the little church as a service was about to start, you take your chances when visiting as to whether you can actually... More

This is the site where Our Lord Jesus cried over Jerusalem. We were privileged to have holy mass in the tiny church, and to be able to contribute to a fund for persecuted Iraqi Christians.

LOCATION: a walking distance from the Mosque of Ascension. You can actually walk around the Mt. Olives. COMMENTS: there is a fee of 5NIS/pax. Full of tourists around. No solemnity in the place. Anyway, the positive thing is that there are many languages posted for the Lord's Prayer...And then there's a rock or a sanctuary place wherein it is believed... More

Dominus Flevit, situated part of the way up the road to the Mt of Olives, across the Kidron Valley from the Old City, is a wonderful little chapel with amazing acoustics. Be ready to sing a favorite hymn, even if you're just a group of four, as the chapel transforms those four voices into a full choir! Just lovely. Opening... More

Regardless of your beliefs, this place is well worth visiting if you're in Jerusalem. There's an amazing view of the Old City of Jerusalem, especially the Temple Mount/Haram Al Sharif, and the small chapel is quite lovely and simple. If there's a pilgrim or tour group or two here, wait around until they leave. During the lull periods this is... More
