View toward Dominus Flevit from the west—from the area of the Temple Mount (aka Haram esh–Sharif).


This church was designed by Antonio Barluzzi and was constructed in the 1950's.  The roof of the church is designed to resemble a "tear drop" — as the church commemorates Jesus weeping over the city of Jerusalem (Luke 19:41–44).  On each of the four corners of the church are large representations of small glass vessels which were used to catch the tears of mourners in the first century A.D.
