 “Mary’s Tomb” site at the Kidron valley, marks by Christian tradition the place of burial of Mary, mother of Jesus, and here Assumption by her son.

The tomb is in a cruciform shpaed crypt at the bottom of the kidron valley, next to  Grotto of Gethsemane  and the  Garden of Gethsemane .

The site bears also the Tomb of the Crusader Queen Melisende and her mother, though the Eastern church attributes these tombs to Anna and Joachim, parents of Mary. They also argue Joseph, the (step-) father of Jesus, is buried at the sie.

Catholic church argues Mary fell asleep before her burial and Assumption, at Dormition Abbey .
