Our tour guide was wonderful! He explained all the reasons why this could have been the very area Christ was crucified and then entombed. Although they never claim this IS the spot, they explain reasons that make it entirely possible it could be. We LOVED the place!

There are two different views of where Jesus was laid in the tomb. I liked this natural cave, v/s the church they've built over the other location. The flowers in the garden are beautiful and the volunteer staff is very knowlegable. They come from countries around the world, to volunteer for months at a time. They love it.:)

Having seen one place on a previous visit that suggests it might be the place of Jesus' crucifixtion and ressurection, this was interesting alternative. We had a very nice gentleman guide us around and give us the prospective of this being the place. It is a lovely place to just think and meditate.

The staff give you a nice explanation of why they considered the real place, very well documented and you can see from one spot all the important and significant places where Jesus was crucified and the grave and later the resurrection. You really feel something special and powerful. don't miss it, and pay close attention to all the explanations and images they have discovered.
