Interesting site claiming to be the actual location of the Crucifixion, Burial and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Within close proximity is "Golgotha" (Aramaic for Skull), bearing a resemblance to a skull on the face of a hill, which now unfortunately stands above a bus station. In 1842 Otto Thenius, a German Scholar, felt for numerous reasons that this was perhaps the true location as opposed to the traditional Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Having visited twice over the years, my first impression left me believing that this was the sacred location, yet upon my second visit, I felt that the traditional site designated in the 4th century under Emperor Constantine might likely be so. You must visit both locations, which will leave you with deep spiritual insights at each. The tomb is an extremely moving experience, and what is written as you leave the tomb which is carved into stone, will put a smile upon your face. The gardens are lovely and the perfect spot for prayer and Scriptural reading. Definitely make the visit.

The Garden tomb is Beautiful

I was really humbled at the tomb. You can sit outside and just reflect or pray. But you may also enter the tomb. I was surprised to see how small it was inside. I tought it would've been bigger then it was. I mean the place where Jesus' body would have been laid.

Great site

This was an important site that we visited. I enjoyed it and the tour guide provided by the Garden Tomb was very good - knowledgable and communicated well
