We stopped here while on a pilgrimage early in the day. Best time to visit since the crowds were not there yet. From the view of an amateur photographer, this subject is intriguing. Ancient walls and the dark interior of the small church beckon. Since on a tour, my gear was a pocket camera and it worked well. A DSLR would be OK if it has a zoom lens. Lighting varies. Inside it is dark, so adjust ISO. Look around. There are some stones from the earliest church on display which lend themselves to detail shots.

Had a quick visit here which sits in the middle of an octagonal walls of ruined Crusader church. Good thing there were some great souvenir stuffs in the premises here that we were able to buy in such a short time.

The most interesting part was an imprint in the rock that claimed to be the footprints of Jesus as he ascended to heaven. If you are int archeology the hitory of the place is interesting

The Church (Dome) of the Ascension was built in the Byzantine era around 380 AD. The Muslims took control from the Crusaders in 1198 and converted the chapel into a mosque. Today you’ll find a minaret and small, deteriorated and plain rotunda inside a walled enclosure. The Chapel marks the spot where Jesus ascended into Heaven after His resurrection, as described in the Gospels. The Dome contains an imprint of Jesus’ right foot before His Ascension (the left footprint is in the Al-Aqsa Mosque). The Mount of Olives has 3 other sites that commemorate the Ascension. We didn’t get to visit these, but I can tell you this one, as part of a mosque, is disappointing. Still, if you’re on a pilgrimage, you’ll want to stop here for the religious significance to Christians.

the presumed site where Jesus ascended. (the muslims celebrate it in a mosque just next to it). However the site did not do it for me - the two caretakers demand a small fee to enter and or the leaflet and the place is very small. Can be skipped if you don't go for the religious significance.
