Chapel of the Ascension | Jerusalem


IMG_20140630_145446The Chapel of the Ascension (Hebrew: קפלת העלייה‎, Greek: Εκκλησάκι της Αναλήψεως) is a shrine located on the Mount of Olives, in the At-Tur district of Jerusalem. Part of a larger complex consisting first of a Christian church and monastery, then an Islamic mosque, it is located on a site the faithful traditionally believe to be the earthly spot where Jesus ascended into Heaven forty days after his resurrection. It houses a slab of stone believed to contain one of his footprints.
