Lots of security around this area. One has to wonder why, however, we never felt in danger. Allow yourself some extra time to simply sit by the gardens and meditate as it's very nice!

The Garden Tomb website says they don't claim to the exact place of the death and resurrection of Jesus, but the archaeological evidence points that way. One thing for sure: It is certainly a more peaceful and spiritual place to visit than the Holy Sepulchre....More

This spot is just outside the north wall of Old Jerusalem. The peace and tranquility of being in the place where Jesus may have been crucified, buried and resurrected is an amazing experience.

Four times I was privileged to be there. It fits the biblical account of where Christ was buried. The Garden itself, the cistern, the wine press, the tomb itself and where the Garden is located. I highly recommend you visit this site

More than any other place this moved me spiritually, seeing Galgotha and an actual excavated tomb was more what I imagined. The other places were built over top with churches and lots of crowds. Our group even had communion here.

I was hightly impressed with this site. It was very simple yet very meaningful. If you go to Israel, this should be included among your places to visit.

It matters not whether this is or is not the tomb of Jesus, it is a genuine ancient tomb in an incredibly serene garden setting. It is the perfect place for quiet contemplation and there are many nooks and crannies to avoid other people if...More
