There are three Churches of the Ascension built on the Mount of Olives, and this chapel (now a mosque) claims to be the oldest.

Its foundations date back to the time of Poimenia at the end of the fourth century, but, like the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, the current structure is of crusader origins.
