This pretty church is adorned with the Lord's prayer in hundreds of languages (some ancient) in gorgeous tilework all along the walls indoors and out. The grounds are well kept and decorated with a nice garden. The different languages definitely set this church apart from all the others.

My wife and I visited Jerusalem in May 2014. At the Church of Pater Noster on the Mount of Olives, christians recall Christ's teaching of the Lord's prayer to His disciples. On walls around the Church, and its vaulted cloister, translations of the Lord's prayer in 140 languages are inscribed on colorful ceramic plaques.

I enjoyed visiting this Church and found all the plaques on the walls with the Lords Prayer in every language you could think off, and a few more besides to be very interesting.
