The inside of the Church of All Nations in Gethsemane is beautifully crafted with numerous mosaics depicting scenes from the life of Jesus. Upon entering the little church one is noticing its quiet, though impressive atmosphere drawing the visitor to contemplation and meditation and some time out from a busy schedule.
The Garden of Gethsemane, so central in Christian faith, is the place where Jesus went to pray with his disciples after the Last Supper the evening before his crucifixion. The two millennia old olive trees from the time of Jesus are still there, surrounding the beautiful 20th century Church of All Nations with its numerous and impressive mosaics. The Olive trees gave the garden its name since Gethsemane (Gat Shmanim) means "olive press" in Hebrew, and they are the oldest olive trees in the area.
Gethsemane is at the foot of the Mount of Olives and at the edge of the Kidron Valley but is not easily accessible from these places by foot. Closed on Sundays. Easy access to garden and church.
