Also known as the "Upper Room", this is definitely a must see experience while on Christian pilgrimage in the Holy Land. While the architecture is lovely and impressive, it led me to believe that this structure was most likely not the actual site of Jesus' Last Supper, which He shared with his 12 Apostles. The building is said to have been damaged throughout history, with speculation that the current structure may have been built by the Crusaders 800 years ago, upon the remains of the first Christian church at this site. From the Latin "coenaculum" or "dining room", the 2nd story room is above the Tomb of King David on the first floor below. Actual location or not, this experience brings the visitor closer to Jesus Christ and is a wonderful location to read Scripture while giving thanks for God's grace. The Upper Room is located in Mt. Zion on the southern side of Old Jerusalem.

One of the must-see in Mt. Zion during pilgrimage. By tradition, it is where the festive Passover meal with His Apostles took place. It is also considered the very first Christian church.

Quite empty

After going out of Zion’s Gate it is about five minutes’ walk. Reaching the place where it is supposed to have occurred the Last Supper it is a bit disappointing because you just see an empty middle age room which doesn’t make you “going back in time”. Enjoy!
