A church celebrating a spiritual event, the ascension of Mary. We were here on a pilgrimage, but my focus is information regarding photographing here. The interior is quite dark, the area small, and it can be crowded. Travel light, a DSLR or pocket camera will suffice. Expect to alter the white balance for lighting and have high ISOs inside. A holy site, avoid disturbing folks and turn off flash.

This deserved to be the mother of all churches here in Mt. Zion reserved for the Blessed Virgin Mary. Tradition holds this was the very spot where Mary ended her worldly existence. This is also the best place where you can offer your prayers to Mama Mary as the Intercessor to her son, Jesus.

To visit the Dormition Abbey on Mount Zion you should go out of the Fortification Wall, taking Zion Gate. Being outside the Wall is about five minutes’ walk. The Abbey is quite a good work of art and the meaning of the place is important for the ones who believe that, up there, Mary’s Assumption took place. Enjoy!

This is well worth visiting if you go to the area where King David is said to be buried and where the last supper was supposed to have taken place.
