The truth is revealed "He is not here he is risen" the tomb is empty. What an emotional experience to see the truth. The place is clean amazingly the most beautiful place in the world.

Nice quiet garden to pray and meditate. Free admission. Not too sure about the Tomb though. No comments. There is a souvenir shop on premises..used as the exit..too costly

This is a truly gorgeous place, peaceful and quiet amidst the chaos of the city. There was a girl playing violin while I was there and she was amazing and it added to the atmosphere beautifully. I fully recommend a visit to here.

I loved the quiet place and was in no hurry to leave. I liked that there was no church attached to this place. Be aware of very intimidating people outside of entrance. They have nothing to do with the Tomb area. I would assume they will steal from you and or harm you.

This is a beautiful, peaceful garden. It is a place of simplicity for quiet reflection. The tomb isn't how I'd imagined it to be and was an amazing experience.

This place is amazing especially if you are an evangelical Christian. We got a Spanish speaking guide and he was great. Would return again.

Although this attraction is saturated with so many tourists who want to take a peek and enter, the few seconds that you are there is both emotionally touching and solemn. As bare as it may seem, you can feel the somber and painful sentiment that must have existed centuries ago. A must to see.
