I found this place is amazing to visit as it feels very holy because our lord Jesus walked through it.

Beautiful view looking up at Jerusalem. Also a 1-to-50 replica of the Old City for easy reference. Easy access from Jerusalem.

This was one of the most peaceful places we toured on our Israel trip. I loved the 800 year old olive trees. This was just a beautiful site.

In this fenced in lovely little garden, there are olive trees here from the time of Christ. So these sacred old, gnarled trees must have witnessed the betrayal and arrest of Jesus Christ.

To be close to the place Jesus prayed and was betrayed is deeply moving. With the city wall in the foreground, he was moving toward his death.

You will stop at the Garden of Gethsemane if you take the Mount of Olives tour. Beautiful old Olive trees in the Garden where according to the Bible Jesus was praying before crucifixion. Very impressive very old trees.

A very beautiful garden on the olive mountain. It is a must-see if you want to visit all biblical places. If you are under time pressure though you can as well skip it and focus on the sights in the old city.

As you enter the church next to the garden, at the altar marks the exact spot (they say), where Jesus agonized in the garden. Many beautiful frescos also on the walls are meaningful.

You can’t actually go in the garden of gethsemane which I found a bit disappointing but you can walk around the outskirts peeking in through the fence. The church based on the site is pretty impressive both inside and out. Worth a 5 minute stop.

Walking through the garden is so surreal because as a christian you can see where Jesus went to pray before his death.
