A very special place in Jerusalem. The place of the skull and the empty tomb.

A very special place in Jerusalem - especially for Christians. No hype. Just a simple well kept garden. Good guides. Excellent walkways and viewing area show the place of the skull - Golgotha and then the tomb. Sensitively displayed and organised. A spriritual place.

The site is not promoted as the actual burial site, perhaps in deference to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, but it is an easier-to-grasp presentation because it lacks ornamentation and is exposed, not hidden under a chapel. As such, it tends to appeal more to Protestants than Catholics. It is a small, artificial cave set up with a place for a large, wheel-like stone to roll to close the entry. If it is not the actual site, it looks like it. 30 to 60 minutes is adequate for a visit depending on the crowds and how long you want to sit and contemplate. FYI, Nablus Road is not marked with a sign, but it is directly across from the Damascus Gate. Just head up what looks like a wide alley, and the marked entry will be on your right.

Lovely spot, particularly on a hot day

Lovely gardens in a courtyard, just outside Old City Walls. Some believe THIS is the site of Jesus' burial. Regardless, it's a perfect spot to spend an hour in the shade after hours of sightseeing. No charge to enter
