The Convent of Saint Mary Magdalene

Situated along the pathway between Dominus Flevit and the Garden of Gethsemene is the spectacular Russian Orthodox Church of Saint Mary Magdalene. Built by Czar Alexander III in 1885, it stands out as one of Jerusalem's most distinctive landmarks. The fact that the Church is in need of major repairs does not detract from its beauty. The seven onion-shaped spires are built in traditional Russian style. Within the church complex is a convent which has one of Jerusalem's most outstanding choirs. Admission is free but make sure to come during opening hours on Tuesday and Thursday from 10:00 to 11:30 am.
