Tomb of the Virgin Mary

Jerusalem Must See Tomb of the Virgin Mary

Located at the foot of the western slope of the Mount of Olives, you find this church. The church is cut into a rock and to get to the tomb of Virgin Mary you have to descend a vaulted staircase area. The cave you end up in, has something mystical about it. It's dark, hundreds of oil lamps hang from the ceiling and the place is filled with ancient paintings. A good place to rest.
