This place is a jewel. Beautifully kept rose gardens, a stunning olive tree field, silence and contemplation all around. Few benches and no cafe, otherwise I would have stayed hours.

I have been to the Mount of Olives a few times and did not realize that the site where Jesus taught the Our Father was right around the corner. The prayer is now on display in 171 different languages. The garden of olive trees outside of this partially reconstructed Roman Catholic church is peaceful and meditative. There is a lovely...

This is a great piece of Christian history and neo-roman architecture, that can be interesting for pilgrimage and for regular tourist. There are some annoying Arab merchants with souvenirs there. Beware the thiefs - in this part of the city you have a probability ( small enough) to lose your wallet))

We first visited the church with our pilgrim group. We were early enough to get into the church which closes I think at noon for the sisters to have private prayer. There are a lot of stairs here, and with our group it was free, but when we went back on our own, we were charged to enter, something like... More

The Lord's Prayer decorates different tiles hung on the walls of the complex in various languages. The building itself is nice architecturally.

What a refreshing stop (& only 10 shekel admission) near the top of the Mount of Olives. We walked up and found this beautiful rose garden and small chapel, and the Lord's Prayer posted on tablets on the walls in hundreds of languages. Interesting historical architecture and niches, and the roses smelled good, too. Quiet and reflective.

This church may not have a special historical value like other churches in Jerusalem or Israel. However, this is a beautiful elegant church where you can find the Lord's Prayer displayed on its walls in many languages and local dialects (I believe the Lord's Prayer displayed there in 130 languages and local dialects). For us as Indonesians, we found the... More

Similar to the Church of the Nativity, this church is not the most elegant and adorned holy site. But, again similar to the Church of the Nativity, this place is very meaningful. As other reviewers mention, the Lord's Prayer is displayed on the walls in about 130 languages. We take the Lord's Prayer for granted, but it contains almost all... More

This was one of our favorites in Jerusalem. It may not have the history of other sites but is meaningful in its own manner. The Lords Prayer is on display in many languages and the setting is serene. It seems to not be on the tour routes so few persons around which helps.
