Built in the 19th century by the Russians with typical Orthodox onion shaped domes to honor the patron Saint of the Czar's family. From afar it dominates the area. Interior is very pretty with icons.

The domes of the church are beautiful. The interior is simple and elegant. Need to take some stairs to get to this quiet church.

I wanted to visit this church - but the visiting hours are so restrictive that it is almost impossible! So I have been to the gate once, and in the neighborhood a few times!!

This monumental church is located on Mount of Olives is a rich decorated church, dedicated by the Russian Tzar in 1899. With its seven gilded domes you can see it from many places in Jerusalem. You must observe strict rules for dress code when entering the site: for women clothes must cover your shoulders and legs, and for men no short trousers.
The inside is richly decorated with precious ikons of saints.

It is difficult to visit, as they publish very short hours but sometimes as it happened to me on a Sunday it was open, with a lot of russian tourists, it is very interesting also to understand about the Mother of Prince Philip that is buried here.

Worth the visit, walking down from Mt of Olives.
