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,

Just be aware that the monk that takes care of the place may get angry if you take pictures. Said that, it is a easy way to go there if you are already nearby the Getsemani.

Although the tomb was encased in glass, it was still worth visiting and giving our petitions. Still felt so exited thinking that our Blessed Mother was buried there.

This church is dedicated to the Virgin Mary and is full of pathos and history. Do not miss the tomb devotion and the nearby grotto where Judas betrayed Jesus.

A very solemn place like a lot of places in Jerusalem. Its more like a cave with beautiful frescos lining the walls. The place has a soulful serene feel... I felt overwhelmed with the feeling of love & compassion

Yes this has to be seen for the architecture of the place if nothing else. A very solemn place like a lot of places in Jerusalem. Rather awkward steps down to the tomb area.
