There are two main places that claim to be the area of the death and resurrection of Christ. The other place may have more tradition but this location is certainly more serene and contemplative. If nothing else this is certainly more like a garden and worth going to sit and rest. You also won't have priests fighting each other (just... More

This is the most authentic site where Jesus was crucified. It's also known as Golgotha. Jesus was crucified and then buried within the Garden Tomb just a few feet so away.

The site is notably peaceful, especially after coming off the streets of the Old City. The guides are friendly and accommodating of your requests. Definitely an impacting experience can be had here.

A serene place to gather and worship or just collect your thoughts. I doubt this was the tomb, but who knows. Bottom line, it was one like this.

This was perhaps one of my most favourite places in Jerusalem. It's beautiful & quiet...the gardens are beautifully kept & the gardeners are lovely to talk to if you have the time :) I had such a deep sense of peace when I sat in this place. I was awestruck by the tomb with the glorious words on the door... More

We enjoyed visiting the garden tomb. It is a week maintained garden with very helpful staff. There is no charge only a suggestion for donations. There is a very nice gift shop for keepsakes. We didn't go into the tomb because there was a big line. My suggestion is to go early to avoid the long lines.

Let's just say - this place made the most sense - in comparison to the Holy Sepulchre. But go - sit in the garden - be quiet - enter the tomb - be quiet… and let me know what you think.

Entrance to the Garden Tomb - which is a 7-10 minute walk from Damascus Gate, Jerusalem - is free. This is a beautiful garden, an oasis of calm in a hectic city - full of inspiration biblical quotes - from which you can see Golgotha (skull cave) although this has eroded somewhat, from a viewing platform. There is space to... More

Go out of the Damascus Gate and go a few hundred meters to the location. The walled off area is peaceful garden in a bustling city. The 'skull' is very disappointing and could not have been around for two thousand years especially if that is an active quarry as our guide stated. The tomb was interesting but the comments of...
