The Garden tomb is like an oasis in Jerusalem. The garden is so peaceful and beautiful. The guide did an incredible job explaining the significance of the place and sharing the story of Jesus' crucifixion and burial. Being able to walk into the empty tomb is so meaningful. We went with our tour group and so were also able to have a communion service on site. The service was all set up for us by the staff and our pastor was able to give a very personal message. This was one of my favorite places we visited in all of Jerusalem.

This was a very quiet and peaceful setting with a lovely giftshop and beautiful gardens to walk around. the tomb itself is simple and while we were there we were lucky enough to be able to listen to a number of choirs that were visiting at the the same time.
