To know that Christ will be returning here and to place His feet. It is such a beautiful place and to see the Golden Gate that is now sealed, but not for long

I toured this area for religious reasons as I have read about it in the bible and it was a delight. There was a good view looking down to Jerusalem.

Best is to go early to avoid large number of people and the heat of the day. The views of Jerusalem from the top of the Mount are magnificent and is impossible not to feel the emotions rising up when one remembers Jesus's own tears...More

No fee.
Bob and I are in our late 50's and will be visiting Jerusalem for the first time in late October/early November of this year. We both have always wanted to visit the Holy Land! We were hoping to be able to renew our marriage vows somewhere in or around close to Jerusalem (Mount of Olives, or elsewhere). Bob is Jewish and I am Catholic. This might be difficult given our mixed faith situation. We did not want to do this at Cana (many seem to want this location). We have been in contact with a Messianic Rabbi who will perform a ceremony for us. Since a Church or synagogue is out of the question in Jerusalem, we were wondering about having the ceremony in a public location. Is this possible, given our situation? There would only be the Rabbi, Bob and I, and two witnesses present. Are there Holy sites where this could take place without causing disruption or controversy? We would be grateful for any information or suggestions you may have! God Bless you for your help.

Here's a suggestion: Contact the folks at The Garden Tomb and ask if it would be possible. It is a very serene peaceful location operated by a non profit group and may well be the location of Christ's burial. Look up... More
