The Mount of Olives, the sacred and historical hillside across the Kidron Valley from the east gate of old Jerusalem is filled with numerous significant locations important in the life of Jesus Christ. While parts of the Mount have been otherwise developped, many areas have been developed as Churches to celebrate important episodes in the Life of Jesus Christ such as the Basilica of the Agony (Church of All Nations) celebrating Christ's Agony in the Garden; The Domini Flugit where Jesus cried over the city of Jerusalem; The Church of The Pater Noster where Christ taught His disciples how to pray; and the Garden of Gethsemane next to the Basilica of the Agony where Jesus Christ spent his last night in prayer. All of these locations are well worth a visit, and should be mandatory for any visit to the Holy Land, but are all closely located - all on the Mount of Olives!
