Located at the foot of Mount of Olives this is said to be the place were Jesus and his disciples came to pray the night before his arrest and crucifixion. These gardens are beautiful.

“A time back in history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

Coming to this place is like a leap back in time. The history, the incidents that happened here during Biblical times, all seem to come together after the explainations by the tour guide.

It's like a story book coming to live!

“Peaceful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2012

I am not a religious person, but I still enjoy religious stories. It was neat to see the place where it is said that Jesus sat the night before he was crucified. Even if you don't believe, it is still a nice garden and a lovely church. Right outside are a bunch of people trying to sell you stuff, but inside the gates is peaceful. There weren't many people there when we were there. The ceilings are beautiful.

“Sacred Garden”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2012

The Garden of Gethsemane is accessible. Chairs and benches are distributed throughout the Garden for quiet personal contemplation. Although we were with an organized tour group, no guide was needed here.
