Walking into this complex is amazing with the imposing fortress-like church. Inside is also beautiful with wonderful mosaics. Roman Catholics believe it marks the place of the tomb of the Virgin Mary, while the Orthodox have another church near the foot of the Mount of Olives with her tomb. Regardless, it is well worth a visit. It is very close to the place marking the Upper Room of the Last Supper, and the adjacent "Tomb of King David".
