I'd like to think this is THE tomb, but even the guides suggest it is in the area, but nobody really knows. You climb in the small doorway one at a time, it can hold about five, and is probably in keeping with what a tomb would be. The curio/gift shop is a 30-second walk away, and that trivializes the...

The Garden Tomb is worth a visit if only because of the surroundings and the efforts which are made on a voluntary basis to keep the gardens beautiful and efforts of the voluntary guides.The three tombs one can view have been dated as being of the first century, however according to our expert Christian guide ( my wife and I...

Tour guides say that it is likely this is not the real garden tomb, but to get a feel for the ressurection this is a good place to go. A real tomb carved in the rock with a stone which can be rolled to close it gives a very good idea of how Christ was buried and what a ressurection... More

Great place to meditate, pray and think about Jesus. It is not that hot if you're from Texas. Great contrast to the Holy Sepulchre which can be a bit of a circus even offseason. Even if this is not the exact place of Jesus' crucifixion, entombment and resurrection, it is a close enough reprsentation to spur your imagination. .

An evangelical Christian perspective of the garden tomb. really well maintained , beautiful gardens and quiet to meditate. Also to see the hill like a skull. As it has been said before this how the tomb should be, even if the actual tomb is most likely inside the Church of the Holy sepulchre. Refreshing for the body and soul.

Always a good feeling when visiting at the Garden Tomb of Christ. The place of the skull also mentioned in the Bible can be seen here while visiting in the garden. The Bible comes alive when you can see these sites with your own eyes. 2000 years passed by but the Holy sites have been preserved by God.

We were walking downhill toward the Damascus Gate to the Old City when we noticed a sign on the right-hand side of the street for the Garden Tomb. We followed an alley with high stone walls and were pleasantly surprised to find such a beautiful spot there amid the busy surrounding area. It was a lovely open space with beautiful... More

A tremendous finish to our journey; a quiet garden to reflect on what the empty tomb means to Christians around the world.

A lovely setting staffed by knowledgable and friendly guides. (Ours came from Essex). She gave a careful and balanced talk about the known methodology of Roman crucifixion, discussed the quarry with the skull-like rock formation, discussed the garden aspects with the water supply and wine press, etc., but was not dogmatic about the detail. After all, she said, it is... More
