View looking south at the Ethiopian monastery that is located on the roof of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.  The dome in the left side of the image is over the Armenian chapel of Saint Helena below.  The Ethiopian clergy occupy the small structures beyond (south of) the dome.  Over the centuries they have lost considerable space in the church to the Copts (Egyptian Christians).
