“Cool church with the Lord's Prayer in hundreds of languages”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

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.

“Multilingual Lord's Prayer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

I wish I had been able to spend more time at this church, but being in an organized group tour, we were shuttled in and out. I was still able to appreciate the Lord's Prayer in various languages placed all over the church and courtyard. I was impressed that there was even a couple in English and Hebrew Braille. This place is worth a visit. The Tomb of the Virgin Mary and church is nearby.

“The Lord's Prayer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

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.
