Overview

In the mid-19th century, the Russian Orthodox Church began expanding its influence in the Holy Land, and encouraged waves of pilgrims to make the journey to the holy places. Holy Trinity Cathedral sits in the Russian Compound, alongside buildings once used as a pilgrim's hostel (including the present police station). The recently restored church has beautiful golden doors of the iconostasis, the stunning icons on the pillars, and the carpeted floor. A small gift stand offers posters, Russian rosaries and prayer books, and souvenir crosses with water from the Jordan River.
