Great experience.

So glad we visited The Garden Tomb. What a lovely experience. The tour guides were very knowledgeable. I would recommend a visit here instead of the Holy Sepulcher.

One of the most amazing experiences of my life! I'm a seasoned traveler (20 countries) and nothing like this anywhere. Free, no crowds, quiet, time to reflect and absorb the magnitude of site. Please go!

This was a nice, quiet place for contemplation, reflection and walking. Many of the sites in Israel are huge tourist attractions and the site of so many tourists can be overwhelming and, quite frankly, annoying (even though I'm a tourist also). However, the management at the Garden Tomb accepted reservations for groups, which minimized the overwhelming feeling that I got... More

We were here at a down time. We got a feel for the peace and finalization of the site's significance. This is a must see. It is easy to find.

To begin I'm an atheist so I take ALL the religious claims of the Holyland with a huge truckload of salt. I'm a big history nerd though so the claims of the Garden Tomb grate a little on that score. The gift shop completely erases Palestinians and the whole place is more pushy on the proselyting than anywhere else in... More

The guide told us this is "supposedly" where Jesus was buried. Hard to wrap my mind around that since it was "discovered in the 1800's", long after another site had been identified in the 300's AD. The tomb at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is where most religions believe Jesus was buried. Yes, this is clearly outside the walls... More

Appreciated this free garden for meditation, prayer, and reflection. I related with this more than the Church of the Holy Sep, probably as I am Protestant. Nice gift shop as well with some Messianic Jewish items.

After experiencing the chaos of the Holy Sepulcher, we went the next day to the garden tomb. A completely different experience. This place has wonderful energy and is a must.
