Church of the Ascension, Jerusalem

Site period: crusader era (1099-1260 AD)

The Church of the ascention lies way up on the top of Mount Olives in the great city of Jerusalem, it is an ancient church built around the beginning of the 4th century AD. According to tradition this is where Jesus climbed up to heaven.

With the conquest of Jerusalem in 1187 by the Sultan Tzalah a-Din came the passing of the church to Muslim hands. In time the Muslims would add a round dome to the church, ceil the arches with stones and turn it into a mask. The church is in Muslim hands until this very day, but can be visited for a small and reasonable fee.
