Will never forget the Sunday Easter Service here. People from all over the world gathered to worship and celebrate Christ risen - was a powerful experience. The gardens are so peaceful too, and the staff who who work there friendly. Would definitely love to do this again.

Truly a poignant experience. The garden tomb is a beautiful place with well kept gardens. Calvary's hill overlooks it and just a couple of hundred yards away is the tomb itself. Thrills the heart and soul to go into the tomb and remember that the Lord Jesus Christ is not there, but He is risen from the dead as it... More

This is well worth a visit on grounds of historical, religious interest as well as being a very beautiful spot near the centre of Jerusalem. Thought-provoking tours are available and there is also a very nice little gift shop. No fee to enter this place but buying items from the gift shop helps to finance the upkeep etc.

What an insightful tour. You should definitely take a tour (free entry) and discover the alternate site of Christ's crucifiction and resurrection. You will leave believing this could be the place. I asked the front office to have communion with my family. They brought us small cups of grape juice and unleavened bread and we partook as a family. There... More

We thoroughly enjoyed visiting the Garden Tomb. It was a nice quiet respite after the hustle and bustle of the Old City. The caretakers are helpful; the grounds are well cared for; lots of places to sit down and reflect while reading the history in the brochure given when you enter. Was definitely one of our favourite spots!

Of all the places we saw while in Israel, this was perhaps my favorite! The Garden Tomb is tucked away on a side street. When you enter (once you get past the pushy panhandler selling postcards in the alley--don't buy from him), there is such a sense of calm and peace. Our guide was a retired pastor, who was so...

The garden tomb has a lovely atmosphere and is pleasant for non-believers as well as believers. The first time we had a guide who talks about the history and why they believe this is the place that Jesus was crucified and resurrected. I would like to think that this is the place too but the Holy Sepulcher seems more historically... More

I was greatly impressed by the enthusiasm, fervor, and joy exuded by our host at this site. His mood was contagious, and his explanations were detailed and thorough. By the time the host finished guiding the group, we were eager to donate money to support this site. The tomb itself was interesting of course, and the site itself is beautifully... More

We were there in the snowy February weather. The garden was absolutely beautiful in the snow. We enjoyed our tour of the area and walked inside the tomb. I feel in my heart that this was the place where Jesus stayed until his resurrection.
