Wonderful stop around Mount Olives area
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed 5 days ago

This church is dedicated to the Virgin Mary and is full of pathos and history. Do not miss the tomb devotion and the nearby grotto where Judas betrayed Jesus.

A place for spiritual reflection

This cave located at the bottom of the hill near the Mount of Olives is where Mary the mother of Jesus was supposed to have laid and died. One account suggests an angel appeared to Mary and told her she had three days to live. Mary apparently lay down in a trance and after she died her body was missing believed to be taken up to Heaven. Her mother Ann and father Joachim are also buried here in side chapels half way down the steep steps. There are normally crowds and the time we visited a special Mass was underway. Mary played such a huge role in the Biblical story.

A very solemn place like a lot of places in Jerusalem. Its more like a cave with beautiful frescos lining the walls. The place has a soulful serene feel... I felt overwhelmed with the feeling of love & compassion
