The Garden Tomb, Jerusalem

4.6
Believed by many Christians to be the tomb of Jesus Christ, The Garden Tomb sits at the edge of a hill that many consider Golgotha, the site mentioned in the Gospels as the location of Jesus' crucifixion. Unearthed in 1864, the site acts as an alternative potential burial and resurrection site to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Group guided tours are available every 30 minutes, or individuals may walk the garden alone. Look for self-guiding leaflets at the information counter.

  • Such a peaceful place in Jerusalem. There is a tangible presence of God that leads to a God encounter. If this is not the real place it sure does give a great visual of what the real would have looked like. Highly recommended as a must see site.
  • I felt a close intimate life changing experience that I couldn't stop crying. I sensed His presence as He healed my heart & forgave me of all my wrong. All honor & glory to our Lord Jesus Christ for giving His life for us! Amen, praise the Lord!
