Russian Orthodox Church of the Ascension

The landmark Tower of the Ascension, atop the Mount of Olives, marks the site where Jesus ascended to Heaven. The paintings in one of the two small chapels, done by nuns a hundred years ago, have been lovingly restored and now welcome multitudes of Russian Orthodox and other visitors. The six-storey tower, with a fabulous view of Jerusalem and the Judean Desert is open only on Ascension Day, 40 days after Easter.
