“Dormition Abbey” is a Benedictine establishment built over the traditional rest place of Virgin Mary (the “DORMITION”) on Mount Zion .

The round church, completed in 1910, bears icons and decorations relating the site also to the “PENTACOST”.

In the lower crypt an abony sculpture of Mary in a sleeping position elludes to her Dormition and Assumption by Jesus.

In the lower floor remains of the Crusaders church can also be seen.
