The Church of All Nations

 

Emperor Theodosius I, as early as the 4th century, built a basilica over the rock on which Jesus is supposed to have prayed. In 1924, on the same spot, a modern church was erected. In front of the altar is the rock, surrounded by a low railing resembling the Crown of Thorns. The pictures in the church are gifts from several countries, hence the name Church of All Nations.
