Architect David Grimm designed the Russian Orthodox Church of Mary Magdalene in 1888. The church was built in 1886 by Czar Alexander III to honor his mother, Empress Maria Alexandrovna of Russia. It was designed in the traditional tented roof style popular in 16th- and 17th-century Russia, and includes seven distinctive, gilded onion domes. The church is located on the Mount of Olives, near the Garden of Gethsemane in East Jerusalem.

Tiberias is an Israeli city on the western shore of the Sea of Galilee named in honor Tiberius, the second emperor of the Roman Empire.

Considered one of Judaism's Four Holy Cities, along with Jerusalem, Hebron and Safed, Tiberias is the location of the tomb of Rabbi Meir Baal HaNes shown in the foreground. Rabbi Meir was a Jewish sage who lived in the time of the Mishna. He was considered one of the greatest of the Tannaim of the fourth generation (139-163). According to the Talmud, his father was a descendant of the Roman Emperor Nero who had converted to Judaism.

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre, also called the Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre, or the Church of the Resurrection by Eastern Christians, is a church within the Christian Quarter of the walled Old City of Jerusalem. It is a few steps away from the Muristan.

The site is venerated as Golgotha (the Hill of Calvary), where Jesus was crucified, and is said also to contain the place where Jesus was buried (the Sepulchre). The church has been a paramount – and for many Christians the most important – pilgrimage destination since at least the 4th century, as the purported site of the resurrection of Jesus. Today it also serves as the headquarters of the Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Jerusalem, while control of the building is shared between several Christian churches and secular entities in complicated arrangements essentially unchanged for centuries. Today, the church is home to branches of Eastern Orthodoxy and Oriental Orthodoxy as well as to Roman Catholicism.

The Chapel of Saint Helena is a 12th-century Armenian church in the lower level of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem.

In the south east of the chapel there is a chair which was reputed to be a seat that was sat in by Saint Helena, the mother of the Emperor Constantine when she was looking for the True Cross. There are two apses in the church, one dedicated to Saint Helena and one to the penitent thief on the cross. The chapel is modestly adorned in memory of Saint Helena's simplicity.
