The recently restored church has beautiful golden doors of the iconostasis, the stunning icons on the pillars, and the carpeted floor.

Added Apr 02, 2010 by haleyklongDespite its name, this church and convent actually commemorates the finding of the buried head of John, the Baptist by two, fourth century Syrian monks. The original church was built by St Helena. In the nearby chapel, a long-buried mosaic floor is believed to be from this church. The floor slopes to a hollow, where John the Baptist's head was said to be discovered. The tower houses an eight ton bell cast in Russia. In 1885, Russian pilgrims pulled it on a specially built cart from the Jaffa port to the Mount of Olives. Get there by taxi, and enjoy walking back to the foot of the Mount of Olives. Dress modestly.

The menu includes hot dishes of the day, such as vegetable and seaweed pie, sweet potato quiche, and spinach lasagna. The cream of butternut soup comes highly recommended and Salad is 5 NIS per 100 grams. Chilled water is free, as is the delicious homebaked, whole wheat bread.

Added Apr 02, 2010 by haleyklongThe quality of the food more than makes up for the busy atmosphere. The hummus with meat is considered a delicacy by most, along with its moussaka, and koubeh soup which is only served on Fridays in the summer. Everything is served with a hunk of onion, a whole chili pepper for the bravest diners, pickled cucumbers, and a hot pile of pitta bread replenished upon request. Since this is a place largely undiscovered by many tourists, don't expect silver service however you are guaranteed an authentic homemade feed at a good price.
