This is an important religious location marked by the Church of All Nations and the nearby Garden of Gethsemane. The church is an important architectural building and well worth a visit. The Garden has olive trees many hundreds of years old. A very unique place.

Built over the rock it was believed Jesus prayed at before his arrest, this monument was not overdone. It is beautiful, reverent and inspires meditation.

Located next to the Garden of Gethsemane, the large rock before the altar is believed to be where Jesus rested the night before his betrayal. Twelve nations supplied the funds to build this church, hence the name.

Crowded church next to the Garden of Gethsemane. Somber decoration and dim lighting inside the church expressed the theme of the church. Ceiling showed evening stars flanked by olive trees, and mosaics in the various apses showed different scenes during that night in the garden....More
