My husband and I have taken many guests to the Garden Tomb, so we've experienced the tour with several different guides. Each one does an excellent job in relaying the main points about the location, its significance, and the possibility of its being the actual site. Even more, they all tell the story of the Gospel, briefly, and the importance... More

This is one of the tomb sites, apparently there can't be a 100 percent accuracy, however this site is the closest it gets to being the one. It is amazing to be able to walk inside the tomb where the body of Jesus was laid to rest for a short time.

If going through the crowded Old City of Jerusalem, standing by the Wailing wall or walking down the Via Dolorosa road has not made you fell God's divine presence, this will... You enter its gates, and it like an oasis in the desert. I enjoyed it soooo much, it was just me and my husband, in a January afternoon, not... More

The Garden Tomb is surrounded by a peaceful, beautiful garden - a respite from the hustle and bustle of the city around it.

Having just returned from my third visit to Israel, I want to recommend this to everyone seeking a quiet place to reflect, meditate and pray over the life, teachings, death and resurrection of Jesus. This is a beautiful garden and the staff is wonderful! Bill

The Garden Tomb, or Gordon's Calvary as it is also known, is located next to the Arab Bus Station. Don't let the location detour you from making a visit. Once inside the walls, there is a calm atmosphere. Birds sweetly sing in the trees. The flowers are beautiful. Visit the Hill of the Skull before making your way along the... More

What an enlightening, ah-ha moment, when the tour guide explained the burial process and why it was significant for Scripture to make the point that Yeshua was buried in an unused tomb.

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.
