Grotto of the Apostles
This small room, adjacent to Mary's Tomb,
is said to be the location of the betrayal and arrest of Jesus.
This says "Gethsemani" I guess because it's adjacent to the garden
where Jesus spent his last night in prayer. But this is actually the
Grotto of the Apostles.
These decorations date the Byzantine Period, roughly 400-800 CE
