The Church of Mary Magdalene is a Russian Orthodox church located on the Mount of Olives, near the Garden of Gethsemane in East Jerusalem. The church was built in 1886 by Tsar Alexander III to honor his mother, Empress Maria Alexandrovna of Russia. It was constructed in the traditional tented roof style popular in 16th- and 17th-century Russia, and includes seven distinctive, gilded onion domes. The convent is located directly across the Kidron Valley from the Temple Mount.
The Western Wall, a remnant of the ancient wall that surrounded the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Herod the Great is believed to have started building it around 19 BCE. The wall goes far below street level and many sections of the Western Wall are concealed behind structures running along the whole length of the Temple Mount. There is just a small portion that remains and is still visible.
