The Church of the Agony was a very somber place to visit. They ask for silence as you walk through the church because it is a sober place commemorating where Jesus sweated drops of blood as he comprehended the terrible path ahead of him. Not only was he horribly tortured and placed on the cross in the crucifixion but he also had to experience the wrath of God that was intended for us. There is a rock in the center of the church they believe was where he sat as he experienced this agony and that is why they build the church around it. Somber place to visit but powerful.

We visited the church and it’s beautiful outside as well as inside. The priest was doing a ceremony, while a lot of people we’re praying. It was a bit crowded because it’s a popular tourist attraction and every tour bus stops here. It’s free of charge.

Excelent

Mount of Olives, this beautiful church was first built by the Byzantines in 379 and rebuilt between 1919 and 1924, the design was magnificent and I was able to light a candle and pray on the altar, ground old olive trees of 2000years though can't be verified but it was a good experience
