That is the definitely place not to miss, when You are already on the Mount of Olives and in the numerous undulated valleys, beneath, and on the hilly slopes.
I didn't expect at these times of visiting such cultures as jewish and muslime, to see some masterpiece from completely another religious world, that is, the orthodox edifice.
This church is near to the very well known to us, the Garden of Gethsemane in East Jerusalem
and is dedicated to Mary Magdalene, a follower of Jesus.
The Russian Tzar Alexander III has built the church in honor to his mother. You can see the characteristic gilded cupols or domes, that pleasantly shine on the top of the main building of the church, during the greater part of the day.
The design is the traditional tented roof style, that Russian remember from the past, 16 and 17 century. There are in total seven distinctive onion domes.
Completely in harmony with the entourage, just enchanting!
