Christian Tour of Jerusalem

Built during the last years of the 4th century, the Byzantine period, the Chapel of the Ascension is designed in a perfect Byzantine architecture style. It is said this is the location of Jesus ascension to heaven, forty days after his resurrection. During these days, Jesus appeared before his apostles several times.
The wonders of the church became known to the public after a story spread that the builders couldn’t tile the floor because the tiles “refused” to stay put. It is rumored Jesus’ footprint still remains in the place.

Judean Desert and the Dead Sea

The Judean Desert is a geological concavity, The Fault Cliff was supposed to be his continuation but the Great Rift Valley broke the view and created a very sharp fault, the Stair Fault.
The Judean Desert is made of Limestone, a very hard surface that absorbs plenty of water. The Judean desert concavity was filled with a younger layer of stone – chalk. The chalk is softer and water proof. The few rain falls in the Judean Desert do not penetrate the chalk, creating dangerous flood in the winter.
