    One of the most powerful, if I may say so, impressions of Jerusalem! Well-known, famous, olives with Gefsimanskim leads to the Garden, as the Crown heads of this Russian church! I say even so-Church of St. Maria Magdalena (Saint Mary Magdalena)-the main decoration of the Mount of olives! View of the old Town are just adorable! After the gray temples of the old town and the sand-colored walls, the Golden domes-holiday heart and soul! Turned out to get inside for a Russian Orthodox person-knock! We got to the service. We have conducted from the gate in the Hill to the temple. The view from here the old town just stunned! The Imperial couple had chosen the right place! Online before you visit, be sure to read the history of the temple and monastery. And then there was the service. The usual Orthodox, where one beats obeisances, cries and deeply about his prays and another smiling and nothing feels! This is our life! Out of the temple oduhotvorjonnye and soothing! Of course there are many places in Jerusalem, where the soul rejoices, but here is one of the main places of attraction for people of Orthodox!

    Beautiful dome, shining gold in the sun, visible from far away. Reminded me of Russian Orthodox churches I saw in Moscov.

    Where Mary of Magdala saw Jesus being arrested in the garden below. Whote Russians. XIXth c. paintings. Beautiful icons and precious relics, like the bodies of archduchess Elisabetha Fedorovna and her servant, martyred by the Bolsheviks and brought back through Siberia.
