Owner description: This tear-shaped church was built between 1953 and 1955 on the spot where, according to tradition, Jesus wept over Jerusalem.
Reviewed November 1, 2012

The church itself isn't particularly remarkable, however they do have a great view of the ancient city. Inside the church the front window has a cross at the centre that imposes nicely over the Temple Mount.

Worth picking up a couple of stones to take home, if anyone asks what they are,.. well, they're the stones that would have cried out!!

although most stones there seem to be modern flint stone..

A nice story/tradition is related to this church ( and as i already wrote at other rating- the story and tradition are the main thing. take a good guide!!) but the main thing about this church is the location, just on the other side of the holliest place for Jews and second holiest place for Muslim. the view is breathtaking (not in an artistic way)

It is a small and very beautiful church, but it most important asset in the view. The church is build in a westward direction, and not eastward - making it a unique church (perhaps the only on in the world facing west). This was done in order that the church would face Temple Mountain, and the view of the dome of the rock from this church is one of the best in Jerusalem (perhaps only the roof of the Austrian Hospice has a better view).

If you are walking down the Mount of Olives it is worth stopping to visit this modern Church if only for the stunning view from the window framing the Dome of the Rock.
