One of many churches in Jerusalem where many events from the new testament took place..this church build in the early 20th century ( architect Berluzzi) through donations from 12 nations, obove remnants from earlier churches ( crusader and byzantine ) is where according to tradition Jesus prayed before being arrested , and then tried and crucified ( Matt 26:39)..It is always crowded with tourists, going through the garden with the super old olive trees, and then trying to get a glimpse of the inside with its melancholy mood...A look from across the street at the impressive mosaic work above the entrance is worth risking being run over by traffic...

I did not like it being so modern, but it was in a lovely setting. The grounds are well worth sitting down in for a while.

Loved the outside mosaic entrance and the beautiful olive trees. The mosaics inside were also beautiful. The is a great view of the temple and Eastern wall from the front of the church.

A great church looks great at night all lit up. In the gardens of gethsame inside the mosaics and doors and windows tell their own stories! So much to see and learn about! A great site to visit when in Jerusalem the gardens are well maintained aswell!
