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.
