Located east of Jerusalem, this holy spot is associated with many events in Jesus’ life including ascending to Heaven (Chapel of Ascension) and teaching his disciples the Lord’s prayer (Pater Noster).

There is not much to do here, just to ride the camel and take pictures, but the view is amazing, I´ll give you that.

When you go here there is obvious history and sights to see but, if you are lucky you may catch Mr. Obama, the camel, so amazingly sweet.

An amazing view of the city any time but especially in the very early morning just after sunrise. The view is to the west and the sun rising from the east bathes the city in the most beautiful light. Getting to the top by taxi...More

The mount of olives has a very nice panoramic view overlooking the old city of Jerusalem. Moreover it has many churches to visit in the same area. One would enjoy walking the path of Jesus on Palm Sunday (it is a steep slope path)

Drove up to top of Mount of Olives and visualized path of Christ. Worth the time. Use a guide. This place helps put all the pieces of the puzzle in persecutive as to last days of Jesus.

This is perfect spot to see the amazing landscape view of the Old City. You get the chance to ride a camel through renting them from the local camel raisers living there nearby. It has a beautiful climate also which adds awesomeness to your experience.

No fee.
Bob and I are in our late 50's and will be visiting Jerusalem for the first time in late October/early November of this year. We both have always wanted to visit the Holy Land! We were hoping to be able to renew our marriage vows somewhere in or around close to Jerusalem (Mount of Olives, or elsewhere). Bob is Jewish and I am Catholic. This might be difficult given our mixed faith situation. We did not want to do this at Cana (many seem to want this location). We have been in contact with a Messianic Rabbi who will perform a ceremony for us. Since a Church or synagogue is out of the question in Jerusalem, we were wondering about having the ceremony in a public location. Is this possible, given our situation? There would only be the Rabbi, Bob and I, and two witnesses present. Are there Holy sites where this could take place without causing disruption or controversy? We would be grateful for any information or suggestions you may have! God Bless you for your help.

Here's a suggestion: Contact the folks at The Garden Tomb and ask if it would be possible. It is a very serene peaceful location operated by a non profit group and may well be the location of Christ's burial. Look up... More
