Dormition Abbey

The Church of the Dormition is located on the hill of Mount Zion, the highest point in Old Jerusalem. Tradition indicates this place as the location where the Virgin Mary “fell asleep” and was assumed into heaven. Although some will argue that Mary was at Ephesus when she died, early historical sources and tradition, concur the location was Jerusalem.

You fell asleep and went home to your son
You awoke in heaven with our king
A just reward your praises we will sing
