Passing a beautiful little souvenir shop (with some items from Bethlehem). We had a wonderful tour guide (Pastor from Norway) who took us through the beautiful, well kept garden. He explained some of the historic spots and left us on our own to visit the actual tomb. As he said this may or may not be the actual spot where... More

Though this is almost certainly not the place of Jesus' burial and resurrection, it feels much more authentic than Holy Sepulchre, where everyone goes. Holy Sepulchre left my group cold, it is full of glitz and gold and has a nonworshipful atmosphere. The Garden Tomb looks the way the area actually looked when Jesus lived. Our group had a wonderful... More

The Garden Tomb was so nicely maintained. There was actually a tour group from Africa visiting when we were there. It is moving to see how people are rejoicing for the empty tomb. The staff at the property were very kind too.

We were lucky enough to get up early for the Easter Sunday dawn service that was held here. No one is sure this is the burial site of Jesus Christ, but it gives you a great example of what it would have looked like.

So...because we don't know 100% that this is in fact where Jesus was crucified and buried, I can't really give it a full 5 mark. The layout is really beautiful, and the site is very, very well maintained. I was even lucky enough to go inside the tomb alone, which was an incredible experience. Looking at where Jesus may have...

The Garden Tomb was a short walk from the Damascus Gate. It is beautiful garden in a location hypothesized by some to be the place of Jesus' crucifixion and burial. Our guide explained the reasons the reasons they believe these events could have happened here and they were plausible. I appreciated that this site was a garden and not a... More

I felt I was in a Disney park. Everything seemed staged and forced. Nothing they said or I saw seemed real. A good way to make money...

This is the most peaceful place out of all the historical biblical sites, says it all really. I was fortunate to have the place to myself this September and read the scriptures of Jesus crucifixion, burial and resurrection while I was sat here, validating this is the actual place it happened. The scriptures contain details of the 'place of the... More

The Garden Tomb is a rock-cut tomb that was found in 1867 and is being considered as the site of the burial and resurrection of Jesus. Since 1984 the Garden Tomb and it's surrounding gardens have been maintained by the Christian non-denomination charitable trust based in United Kingdom. There is no specific fee for the entrance but a donation is... More
