Been in New Jerusalem a year ago, and now again. It has changed beyond recognition! They nearly finished the restoration, just the flowerbeds are left to do, the domes are shining, everything is tidy and smashing beautiful.

The place itself is gorgeous, very beautiful from outside and the surrounding park, but the church inside is under reconstruction so you won't see much. if you are in no hurry you can go there for 1-2 hours just to walk around the area.
