Welcome to a Pilgrim in the Holy Land.( ISRAEL)

~CHURCH OF VISITATION - Ein Karem... "And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste into a city of Judah, and entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth."(Luke 1:39-40) Ein Karem is a village situated 7 kilometres south-west of Jerusalem. According to tradition, Ein Karem is the "city of Judah" which is associated with the life of John the Baptist. Here Zacharias, John the Baptist's father, had his summer home, and here the Virgin Mary visited her cousin Elisabeth. The Church of the Visitation was built on the spot where the house was situated. The present Church of the Visitation was built in 1935 by the architect Barluzzi on the remains of former churches, the first of which was built in the fourth century A.D. and later destroyed. Inside the church there is a fresco depicting the visit of the Virgin Mary and below are the altar and the ancient well.
