This stunning basilica is located on the Mount of Olives outside the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem.

Right outside the basilica is the Garden of Gethsemane (גת שמנים; Gat-Šmânim).  The mosaic on the left depicts Jesus Christ and Judas Iscariot in Gat-Šmânim on the night he was betrayed and arrested.
