Mount Olive. Wanted to write a review of Mount Olive. I was greatly surprised I could NOT find "Mount Olive" or "Mount of Olive" in the listing. Instead found that "Monte das Oliveiras" was listed. Entered it , and wrote the review. TA needs to sort the listings of a place known by more than one name. Mount Olive also called Mount of Olive is a mountain ridge east of Jerusalem. We reached there after about 30 minutes of driving through the city. Estimate about 10 KMs from our hotel. It called Mount Olive because at one time the mountain was full of olive trees. The slopes are full of thousands of tombs of Jewish people . Apparently Mount Olive has been used as a cemetery by Jewish community for the last 3000 years or so. Mount olive offers excellent view of Temple Mountain, old city of Jerusalem and of Jerusalem City. Tourists as well as locals visit Mount olive in large numbers not only because of the view, but also because they can have a bird's eye view of most important religious sites of Jews, Christians. Temple Mount, which is the site where once Temples of Solomon and Temple of David stood, Jesus was judged and crucified. For Muslims as Dome if the Rock with its Golden Dome stands out and is visible from almost any part of the mountain and which is of religious importance to the Muslims Important land marks of the life of Jesus are located on the slopes Mount Olive. They Include, Tomb of Virgin, Gethsemane, where Jesus underwent the agony in the garden and was arrested the night before his crucifixion Church of all Nations is also located here. Church Of All Nations where Jesus night before is betrayal by Judas and arrest,. A MUST see attraction in Jerusalem

Mount of Olives is the place to see the Old City from an elevated perspective; the Dome of the Rock will be front and center. On the slope of the mountain, there are half a dozen interesting places, including churches and Gethsemane Gardens.

We knew that going to the Mount of Olives was definitely something we had to do. It was perfect timing - sunset. From the view deck across the Seven Arches hotel we had a great view of the old city most importantly the eastern gate. Standing right there I can't help but think that...

We knew that going to the Mount of Olives was definitely something we had to do. It was perfect timing - sunset. From the view deck across the Seven Arches hotel we had a great view of the old city most importantly the eastern gate. Standing right there I can't help but think that Jesus is coming soon and this place will serve its purpose. For now, we admire the view and pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
