This hall is apparently where the last supper was held and also where during Pentacost after Christ's crucifixion that the Holy Spirit entered the Apostles. Its significance based on this could be construed as the start of Christian Church. There is nothing much to see in this room and over the ages, the room has changed from various occupiers so there is Crusader influence as well as Muslim influence seen in the architecture. As a Christian, this would be a must visit site as it is the start of the Eucharist or Holy Communion. Be prepared for large crowds.

It is said that The Cenacle room on Mt Zion is where two major events in the early Christian Church are commemorated: The Last Supper and the coming of the Holy Spirit on the apostles. The Last Supper was the meal Jesus shared with his apostles the night before he died. During this meal he instituted the Eucharist. The coming of the Holy Spirit, at Pentecost, is recognised as marking the birth of the Christian Church. The Cenacle is on the upper floor of a two-storey building near the Church of the Dormition, south of the Zion Gate in the walls of Jerusalem’s Old City. Above it is the minaret of a Muslim mosque; immediately beneath it is the Jewish shrine venerated as the Tomb of King David (though he is not buried there).

Beauty in the Simplicity of this site

It is believed that the Last Supper took place in this room. It is a simple room but if you remin there long enough the visceral emotions of the past can overwhelm you. It is a very small place, though, and people tend to crowd in, so if you feel claustrophobic at all stay...

It is believed that the Last Supper took place in this room. It is a simple room but if you remin there long enough the visceral emotions of the past can overwhelm you. It is a very small place, though, and people tend to crowd in, so if you feel claustrophobic at all stay on the outskirts of the room by the doors so you can escape.
