I enjoyed visiting the Garden Tomb, it was not in my original plan, but glad I stopped by. It was full of people so I might have missed some things and there was a line to go see the tomb. The gardens were well taken care of and they have nice souvenir shop.

Peace in the middle of Jerusalem. Lovely place - better than ever. A must if you are in Jerusalem! Shows how the grave of Jesus might have looked like.

Improbable site of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus. There are nice garden areas and places for reflection. Friendly guides.

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.
