if you are intrested in the early jewish-christian community at the 1st century AD you should explore the tombs and caves they have found there. the church is modern but it is a jem in jerusalem. the view to the eastern wall of the old city is probably one of the best in the city.

Hard work to get here on foot(But you can take a taxi) but so worthwhile. There is a large window in the church that frames beautiful golden Jerusalem just perfectly ,as welll as an olive grove. Peaceful.

The church was designed to look like a tear drop representing the tears that Christ is believed to have shed on this site. The view through the window over the altar is stunning. The patio/walking area overlooks the Old City and has a remarkable view of the Dome of the rock and the surrounding complex. There are remains of mosaics... More

The church in itself is quite small. It's stark but beautiful and peaceful in its own way. Affords beautiful views of old Jerusalem city. Nice place to sit and contemplate. Do it as a part of the mount of olives walk

It is a hike to get up to this church from the bottom of the Mount of Olives. If you are trying to reach it from the Old City, I'd plan at least 1-1.5 hours, walking, to get there and back again. The church itself is quaint, and the garden is nice, but the best part is definitely the view... More

While solo touring the Mount of Olives on foot, the Dominus Flevit has become our favourite spot to sit, pray, reflect and take in the historic beauty of the old city view. We arrived during their off hours (break?) posted on the gate, but Father Sebastion still let us in and even welcomed my wife, brother and I to have... More

I visited the church Dominus Flevit in Jerusalem, where Jesus wept because many people who have not repented. Lovely place, spacious, many tourists from abroad come here. I will come again someday.

Probably the most interning from architectural point of view of all the churches on the mt of Olives is Dominus Flevit. Jesus wept overlooking the Temple, as the gospel teaches, and one can easily imagine this scene as the view of the Temple mt is really stunning. Church is shaped as a tear, next to it one can find sarcofague... More

Good view...not much else for us. Church itself was closed when we got there. Not much else to do on the site.
