Al Manara Square, Old City, Bethlehem

According to Syriac tradition, the Syriac Orthodox Church was established as a congregation by the Apostle Peter in 37 AD (Acts 11:26).

The Syriac Church of the Virgin Mary, constructed in 1922 in the Old City, is one of the most beautiful Christian sanctuaries built in Bethlehem during the Ottoman period. It is a parish church for the Syriac Christians who came to Bethlehem in the 19th century. They settled in the Syriac Quarter or Hawsh Syrian - named after the community - currently located behind the Church. The frescos inside the sanctuary depict different saints and stories from the Holy Bible.
