“Lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

Very lovely from the outside. Tried to go inside two times there is always a mass going on, thus only got to see it from far away. Must see if you are in Vilnius, plus there is a very old church nearby that is not renovated it is nice to check it out

“Stunning chapel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

As the afternoon sun sank over the top of the Gates of Dawn, the gold and silver of the altar to the Blessed Virgin Mary shone through the windows drawing everyone into the chapel above the gate, a peaceful feeling indeed.

“An Icon of Note”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014 via mobile

Although the Gates of Dawn are interesting, the icon of Mary is the main item of interest. The chapel is small with no architecture to admire, the reason to visit is simply to view the icon.

“Very nice place”

Take your time to visit this place inside. If you have enough time, visit this place during evening worship.
