Pilgrims and curious travelers alike visit Garden of Gethsemane, where the Gospels of Mark and Matthew claim that Jesus slept the night before his capture by the Romans. This olive grove, at the base of the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, contains some trees that recent scientific dating found at least a millennium old. The Franciscan order has held responsibility for the site since 1361. You can visit during Mass, or offer prayers in solitude inside the basilica at the garden's edge.

Too bad because the priest who is in charge of the maintenance of the garden took him for a real personal garden... now there is lavender, rosemary .... etc etc etc Anyway if you are in Jerusalem a jump is a must!
Wow!!! To be able to pray in the very garden that my LORD and Saviour Jesus Christ prayed. I praise Him for sweating great drops of blood for me!!
The olive trees give something of a feel for the place, although it was unlikely like this in Biblical times. The crowds though detract from any deep sense of occasion if you're trying to connect with the spiritual significance of the place.
