This church has a great sense of silence and beautiful arched mosaics at the upper level. There are clear posters indicating the origin and architecture of the church. This site reveals some of the original steps believed to have been walked by Jesus Christ on the night of his trial after his capture at the Garden of Gethsemane. A monument commemorates Peter swearing to the maid servant at the Gate that he did not know Jesus. Beside the church, an underground pit is believed to be the place where Jesus was held on that first Holy Thursday night. The visit is well managed and the site is well tended with flowers and wall plaques. A well-stocked gift shop, coffee shop and toilet facilities are located at this site. The pavements leading from the coach park to the site are well maintained and not too steep.

The wait may be long, for us it was short. Only one group at a time fits down in the dungeon where Jesus was held. Pretty sobering history.

Beautiful chapel and comfortable guest house.

The guest house was comfortable, basic but comfortable. Very quiet even though it is off a busy street. Just outside the wall around of Old Jerusalem between Zion gate and Dung Gate. Great view across to the Mount of Olives.
