To begin I'm an atheist so I take ALL the religious claims of the Holyland with a huge truckload of salt. I'm a big history nerd though so the claims of the Garden Tomb grate a little on that score. The gift shop completely erases Palestinians and the whole place is more pushy on the proselyting than anywhere else in... More

The guide told us this is "supposedly" where Jesus was buried. Hard to wrap my mind around that since it was "discovered in the 1800's", long after another site had been identified in the 300's AD.

Appreciated this free garden for meditation, prayer, and reflection. I related with this more than the Church of the Holy Sep, probably as I am Protestant. Nice gift shop as well with some Messianic Jewish items.

After experiencing the chaos of the Holy Sepulcher, we went the next day to the garden tomb. A completely different experience. This place has wonderful energy and is a must.

This is the site that corresponds with the Biblical account of Golgotha and the tomb. Everything matches up with scripture. This is a must see.

A visit to the garden tomb is a must. The atmosphere is peaceful and one is very much aware of a momentous incident that happened here. The grounds are extremely well maintained.

This is a beautiful and peaceful garden, with a tomb where Jesus is said to have been buried. Many groups take communion here or people renew wedding vows here.
