This is a beautiful church at the spot of the Garden of Gethsemane. It has several moving paintings and a rock commemorating Jesus' prayer of acceptance and self-giving.

This is worth a visit to see the architecture and paintings on the walls and ceilings of this church building. It is located next to the Garden of Gethsemane where Christ prayed to the father before he began his journey to the Crucifixion..
