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.

My favorite place in Jerusalem as the Olive Trees are so old that at least one was there when Jesus visited.

The magnitud of the feelings in this garden is incomparable and no words can describe the emotions and sentiments you will develop here. Seen olive trees 2000 years old.... Priceless

It felt like I was walking the bible, being given a chance to pray on the garden and an experienced tour guide was on top of it.

A very holy place, once you're there make sure to enjoy quiet meditation in this sacred place where Jesus went through a lot.

When I was there they did not allow visitors into the actual garden. So I had to simply appreciate the garden from outside the gates but you are able to walk around the perimeter.

Olive trees, so many and so beautiful, maybe they are not from the time of Christ although you have feeling that they are participants of those days and it make you feel special

It is religious site. No charge for entry. Only some postcard sellers outside. Like all churches there will be a donation box if you wish to leave something.
