Interesting place, not sure how accurate it is but I must say it's a bit gloomy in there. Glad I saw it. Hard to find unless you have a guide but it's on the right after the garden of Gethsemane down the road a bit.

The whole environment here is very old and historical. I would definitely make the effort to come out of Lions gate and visit this place.

I viewed the tomb in a rush as the church was about to close. I wasn't able to fully take in everything. However, at this location, there is much to take in here. I recommend taking more than a few minutes there.

The large crypt containing the empty tomb in the Church of the Assumption is all that remains of an early 5th-century church, making it possibly the oldest near-complete religious building in Jerusalem.

Churches are built by either the Catholics, or Orthodox to claim the supposedly place of people in the Bible. However, we have to take it with a grain of salt. This one is one of them. Though they have a tomb inside here, never know...More

This is a great church, glad I say it. I guess that I am not into worshipping places but that the heart needs to be right.
