“This is amazing and worth visiting!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

This was the highlight of my trip - seeing the garden and tomb where Jesus was laid after the crucification. Truly amazing and worth visiting as the gardens are beautifully kepty.

“A deeply spiritual experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We visited the Garden Tomb on our tour of Jerusalem. It was truly a deeply spiritual experience. As a group, we also shared communion by the tomb. How can anyone deny that this was the place that our Lord was cruicified and buried (and then resurrected!)? The skull is so very apparent. Regardless of it's authenticity, we as Christians are assured that Jesus is truly 'no longer here...He has arisen!".

The Gardens are so tranquil and beautiful to walk through. I would highly recommend that you have one of the guides take you through the Gardens and explain the history and present work of this amazing organization.

Don't neglect visiting the Garden Tomb while in Jerusalem!

“Friendly, and informative”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

The team at the Garden Tomb are very friendly, and give you the story behind the place in information bite sizes.

If you are interested in the Christian history, or the history of the man that changed history, then this is place to visit, after all, its perhaps the very spot where he rose from the dead!

It it not proven this is the place of Christ's death and buriel, but it helps you remember that He died for our sins, was buried and rose again.
