I found this to be emotional and amazing. Lots of groups singing and praising God and was very good. I would visit here again. Our guide was very educational and quite funny at times. It is a beautiful garden area. So glad our group visited the Garden Tomb.

A bit difficult to find as this is not on the maps given out at the hotels. Well worth the time to seek out this peaceful, meditative garden which is maintained by a Christian organization. No entrance fee, but a donation is accepted. The actual Golgotha hill has a Muslim cemetery on top and a city bus station rumbling below!... More

I was not aware of this place prior to arrival. After see traditional location I was dissapointed but when I went to this place it made more sense. It has everything that fits into the story. Nice walking distance from Old town

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...
