This is the most inspirational location in all of Jerusalem for Christians. Do not miss it. Wonderful guides, perfect spot for some quiet time and reflection, perfect place to pray for Jerusalem. Your group can also share communion.

We visited both of the possible sites in Jerusalem of the cross and tomb and regardless of the claims of genuineness we found this to be the one that provided the best experience for contemplation on the significance of the events that took place. It is set in a beautifully well tended garden with many sites for group or individual... More

The Garden Tomb provides respite from what can be the chaos of Jerusalem. There are plenty of places in the Garden where you can sit quietly and ponder the miraculous events that happened here. While others maintain the Savior's tomb is elsewhere in the city, I believe it was here and enjoyed those sweet feelings one gets from time to... More

The Garden Tomb is one of the two locations believed to house Jesus' tomb. The site was uncovered much more recently and matches the description in the writings. It is non-profit and well maintained. It is located just outside the walls of Jerusalem. What I liked about this site the most, was the open-mindedness of the people running it. A... More

This location is great to visit while in town. It fits the bill for where Jesus may have been laid, but no one really knows for sure. Still, it fits according to the Bible and is a beautiful place also. This is a must see!

Most Christians go to the Church of the Holy Speculcher and only few visit the Garden Tomb. If I'm not mistaken, some of the Christians believe that this is the place where Jesus reappeared after his crucifixion. The place is beautiful and well taken care of.

We spent a few days visiting many biblical sites in Israel. It was so refreshing to fin the Garden Tomb (one of 4 likely places where Jesus was buried) and find it not spoilt by a man made expensive church but is by and large still in tact as to how it would have been in the time of Christ....

The Garden is beautiful and the tomb where our Lord was laid, is empty as He rose from the dead. Our Guide in the Garden was wonderful and had such a heart for the Word of God!
