At the foot of the Mount of Olives, very nearby Gethsemane Garden in Jerusalem is the Cave of Betrayal - the place in which according to Christian tradition Judas Iscariot betrayed Jesus by cutting a deal with the Roman rule to hand Jesus over to them.

The cave is also known as the "Cave of the Apostles” for some claim that is where Jthe apostles of Jesus slept on the night of Christ's arrest. 
Other names of the cave include: the "Cave of the Agony” and the "Cave of Gethsemane” in referral to night of  the arrest of Jesus and his prayer of agony to God at the Garden of Gethsemane to forgive him and release him from his fate. 

The Cave of Betrayal in Jerusalem was first regarded as the cave of the betrayal of Judas during the Crusader reign in Jerusalem in the 12th century. The Crusader even painted stars on the ceiling of the cave to symbolize the somber and anguished night of the capture of Jesus Christ in Jerusalem by the Roman soldiers.  

The Cave of Betrayal is an enchanting small cave which serves as a place for prayer for many pilgrims.
