  • Here is a church built over the place where Jesus agonized over His upcoming ordeal. Adjacent to the church is an olive tree grove with some trees dating back to the time of Christ.  more »
  • Not a huge Garden but huge Olive Trees, next to the Church of Agony at the base of the Mt. of Olives.  more »
