The Gethsemane Church of All Nations, also known as the Basilica of the Agony, was built in 1924 at the traditional site of the Garden of Gethsemane. Inside the church is a rock, now enclosed by a wrought-iron crown of thorns, said to be where Christ prayed on the night before His crucifixion.

If you’ve ever attempted such a feat, you know that climbing to that elevation takes considerable effort. As you ascend, the air becomes thinner, and your body reacts to the changing altitude.
