Amazing. Even if this isn't the site of Christ's crucifixion and tomb this place is made holy by the constant worshipping and gathering of fellow Christians from around the globe. So emotional yet a peaceful place. Cleverly designed garden so you can find places to pray and reflect. My top site of Jerusalem by far!

Spend quiet time reflecting on the significance of the garden with it's old trees & beautiful plants & flowers. This garden is so much more peaceful & meaningful, and there is a super bookshop.

If you're looking for a quiet, not too crowded place where you could feel the presence of God, this is the place. People there are very nice, helpful and give you a great insight about the place. Not well known by the tourists or the French ones, I recommend it.

Our tour guide Rmazi Lazaarus is from Jerusalem & well versed with Biblical & Historical facts. He briefed our group of pilgrims that this is where Jesus was buried in the empty tomb belongs to Joseph of Arimathea. As a result of this factor, it's believed Jesus' Resurrection must be from here. A must see for the tourists & pilgrims.

Outside it's quite hectic but inside it's peaceful and calm. It probably isn't Calvary but it's a good place to visit just for the calmness.

Our group ended our 12-day visit at the Garden Tomb where we enjoyed the peaceful garden to celebrate communion. Regardless of authenticity, it is a meaningful place to reflect.

Whether this is the actual burial location of Jesus, whether that location is on the grounds of Church of the Holy Sepulcher, or it is somewhere else in Jerusalem, the Garden Tomb grounds are a place of true peace and beauty. We celebrated communion on the grounds, a lasting memory. For anyone of faith, this is a place not to... More

Anyone taking the time to study the historical data will find that regardless of how confusing and loud the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is, that is almost for sure the place of Christ's death and burial. But Protestants, left out by the churches that control the CHS (that is probably the one thing they all agree on -- keep... More

visiting this peaceful and wonderful garden will not cost you anything. This is a really interesting trip beside the official version of the church according to which Jesus was crucified and laid to grave at the Holy Sepulcre site. The Golgotha rock and the small grave digged in the rock seem so close to the story we know from the... More
