This is a significant biblical site to see but it is not as impressive as I had expected. Trip advisor requires 100 characters but there is not much to say. It was a block with some olive trees. Not very impressive to see but has a great deal of biblical significance.

Such a moving Experience

This place was beautiful. We were able to meditate on the Gospel and see trees that were there when Christ was praying. A must see!

We visited on a pilgrimage as did lots of other people. So, we walked around the perimeter of the garden, a collection of olive trees, some very old, in single file and briefly stopped for pictures. The interior of the garden is off-limits. If you are an amateur photographer, expect to have crowds and only a few minutes to grab shots. My advice: travel light with a pocket camera or a DSRL with a zoom lens, take a lot of pictures and expect to delete the bad ones later. There is not much contrast in the trees and their leaves. Post-processing for contrast may be needed.
