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.

The number of religious sites of importance is overwhelming. Even if religion is not so important, these sites must be seen to better appreciate why the world has become the contentious planet that it is.

This place looks pretty ancient or at least the athmosphere makes you feel like you entered something ancient. It looks dark and mystic. Allegedly, it is the place where Virgin Mary is burried.

It is close to Gethsemane. A cave like structure commemorating the life of a mother who gave birth to the son of God.

Seeing the tomb of the Virgin Mary was everything I wanted to see. Learned a lot from how She was carried by the Angels to heaven through the Assupmtion.

This site was pretty crowded, wish we cold have come earlier as we couldn't even get close inside. So other than that it was very beautiful in here. There was some stairs down that were pretty easy,
