The interior of the church was quite interesting. But the highlight for me were the old olive trees nearby reminding me of the Garden of Gethsemane, and which overlooked the Kidron Valley and former temple mount (now Dome of the Rock). This brought into perspective...More

Here we were able to see all of the Church and pray as there were so many people the guide could not keep us all together.

The Church of All Nations or the Basilica of the Agony is located on the Mount of Olives. This is the place where Jesus was praying just before he was betrayed. A small garden with about 8 olive trees mark the actual Garden of Gethsemane....More

A stone pillar at the gate marks the spot where Jesus asked his weary disciples 'could you not watch one hour with me?' A long queue led to the church entrance, but the well tended natural garden offered opportunities for photos to be treasured, including...More

We were able to do a private Sunday mass here. It is good for a private service of about 30, a full public mass would be many more here. Great history.

I thought the stained glass windows of a cross were about as pretty as I've ever seen. Aside from the stained glass, the windows include an opaqwue lightblocking material, so that in the window there is light shining throug honly where the artyist wanted.

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.
