Just to the East of Musjid Aqsa, this hill is above alrge graveyard. The views of Aqsa and the old city are bretahtaking. Would have like some tourist info here and restrooms

An area that you can spend hours walking around. So much to see plus great views

I spent most of a hot day walking around the hillside area that looks down on the city. There are lots of walkways and amazing views of the city and the beautiful Dome of the Rock mosque that stands out all the time. nnI enjoyed walking around the busy Muslim quarter first and then stopped for lunch before visiting the various Jewish cemeteries that cover the hillside. I had hoped to go to the Russian Orthodox Church but was only open certain days by appointment. It was all walled off to so difficult to see. Shame. I continued to further viewing points, a number of tombs before making my way down to the Gethsemane area and the Franciscan church. This whole area and the mt area is a great exercise and there are lots to see as well as great views.

A Must for Orthodox Christians!

Orthodox Christians certainly have to visit the Mount of Olives, from where Jesus ascended! There are also a few Orthodox Monasteries & Churches, very important Biblically! The Mount of Olives Hotel makes perfect sense for your stay while there! xo~A
