Owner description: Located outside the walls of Jerusalem, this beautiful garden among a grove of olive trees is thought to be the place where Jesus particularly enjoyed prayer and contemplation.

Calm and collecting. The garden hosts old olive trees and the youngest tree being planted by the pope in 1960's. The garden leads to the church which has the most amazing painted ceiling and sections of the walls are build displaying the original stone that would have been there before the church was built.

Still a working church

Lovely place to go to if only minus the pilgrims. The Church of all nations is beautiful and very peaceful - the Garden is small but the olive trees are very interesting having been there for 1000's of years. Keep on your itinerary buut a short visit suffices.

If you are Christian, this place has great meaning. Because of the historical significance, the Garden is extremely important. You also get a great view of the Old City.

This garden is beautiful and it's easy to imagine back to the time of Christ what this might have been like. Is it possible the olive trees are really 2000 years old here, as we were told?

This garden is small but nice. What's great is the Church next to it (Church of all Nations) which is worth a visit not for the alledged rock where Jesus stood but for the architecture and decoration of this very beautiful Church. The windows glasswork is very humble and fits the mood perfectly.
