This is worth coming to see just for the garden alone. The volunteer staff is very knowledgeable and gracious. They present the case for this being the correct tomb location. You feel like it is the location based on the bible. They have a very nice and reasonable gift shop. When we arrived they were closed from 12-2 si check... More

I enjoyed the Gardens at this location along with seeing the possible place of Jesus' burial...of what it would possibly look like in the first century. The gardens were beautiful and they provided a free listening guide to tour at your own pace. Should you be travelling without a tour guide.

Jesus was believed to be buried. Although I did not really believe so, I did feel somehow different as soon as entering this place. It is a huge tomb surrounded by a peaceful garden. A good choice for you to see in Jerusalem. Free entrance

Loved the feeling here. Very peaceful and different from many of the other relugious sites. Lots of places to sit and reflect on what happened nearby. There is also a lot of shade and fresh water to make it more pleasant physically.

We enjoyed this place far more than the Holy Sepulchre. It is quiet, peaceful and set up to look like a tomb in the time of Jesus.

If you are looking for the quiet place to worship, you will enjoy every single moment of it. I went there in July on Saturday morning and I could enjoy many parts of it on my own. Garden Tomb impressed me the most. This is exactly how I could imagine this place or even better! I really wanted to go... More

This place is a great Garden and spot for reflection, and located a short walk in East Jerusalem, just East of the Damascus Gate. It is free to enter, and has a very serene, beautiful setting with flowers, shade, and verses throughout the property. When we visited, at the end of the day, it wasn't too crowded. But, there were... More

This site is believed to be where Jesus was buried. Whether it is the exact spot or not it gives a clear picture of what it would have been like. You can walk into the tomb and see where Jesus would have laid. It's very moving.
