Highlight of Jerusalem

To me personally, this place made much more sense compared to the church of the grave. It gives a good impression how the place Jesus was buried really could look like.

Quiet. Does not have the same feel of idol worship that every other major site has - Western Wall, Dome of the Rock, and Holy Sepulchre are all focused on "exact" places or items. The Garden Tomb emphasizes that Jesus is not here. Prayer, worship, and revelation should happen everywhere, everyday.

Can be a little tricky to find when walking, as it is in an Arab area outside the Damascus Gate, but worth persevering. Spend a bit of time there just relaxing and taking in the history and atmosphere of the garden

We had a delightful tour guide from Sweden named Bertal. He did an amazing job explaining the sites of Calvary and the Garden Tomb and the wine press and cistern. Such a feeling of peace in this holy place. It is beautifully kept up with gorgeous flowers and trees, etc. and places for a group to meet and have a... More

The guides are volunteers, but knowledgable and passionate, unlike the authodox exhibit. A moving, emotional visit, well worth it.

The Garden Tomb/Golgotha was my absolute favorite. I opened my Bible to John 19:38 and I was amazed and humbled to be standing where my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, was crucified, laid in the tomb, and where He rose. I know that I know that I know that my Redeemer lives <3

Is this the location of the actual tomb? Some may question it but the presentations made are compelling. The location has to be visited physically to appreciate it. With lectures taking place in view of Golgotha, the landscaping is beautiful and informative at the same time. The area around the tomb is quietly reverent and fascinatingly engaging. The tomb can...

One cannot come away from the Tomb without being emotionally affected. My surprise was how close it was/is to Calvary. The Tomb has 2 chambers -- the inner chamber and the Angel's Chamber which is where the angels met Mary Magdalene and Mary when they went to anoint Christ's body.Only 5-6 people can stand in the inner Tomb at one...

Technically this wasnt the original Tomb, where Jesus was buried. Excavations would seem to indicate that the tomb is too ancient to have been the one built by Joseph of Arimathea. THe details of the chiselled walls and the bench type arrangement suggest a date during the Old Testament. Nevertheless it is a scenic and quiet place to reflect. The... More
