One of most touching place I have ever visited, beautiful modern church was built on the historical site, the place where Jesus was held on trial by the Jewish high priest, Caiaphas, kept one night inside a pit, He was lowered down into the pit through a hole. A site where said to be 3x denial said out by St. Peter before the cock crowed, one of His love most disciple, as He had forseen and fortold during the Last Supper shared with all His disciples. We had a chance to pray in the pit, took a silent moment to imagine the agony scene inside our head, chanting Jesus, Jesus, Jesus. How lonely as a human He must have been that very night in Bethlehem.

Without the story, this is only another church. If you have a guide to explain the background, it's worth a 30 minute visit.

Beautiful church

This Church stands not far from the Zion Gate and it is very close to Dormition Abbey. You can find it just using the map of Old City. It's a new looking building, but under it there are very old chambers and passages. And you must pay, if you want to visit this Church.
