Very Sacred Place
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed 1 day ago

We were in group there last week. That is the Place where Jusuf from Arimathea put the body of Jesus after He was crucified and dies. Very sacred place for me.

know what it is before you go, but lovely

Protestants and Evangelicals consistently tell me this is one of their favorite parts of a visit to Jerusalem. I didn't find it so but I seem to be in the minority. For a hot minute, people thought this might be where Christ was buried...but historically it's not. Props to the guides...

Protestants and Evangelicals consistently tell me this is one of their favorite parts of a visit to Jerusalem. I didn't find it so but I seem to be in the minority. For a hot minute, people thought this might be where Christ was buried...but historically it's not. Props to the guides there (you have to use one of their guides on site) for being honest about what it is. Ours had a very evangelical focus so if you aren't a Christian be prepared (although they did NOT proselytize as per Israeli law). Tomb itself is from 800 BC; I wish it were simply advertised as such as that's interesting in its own right. Major reason for stopping is atmospheric, not historical. Free but visits are often arranged ahead of time with timed entry. Not my cup of tea but very well organized and a powerful experience for others.

Pleasant garden, well worth a visit

This beautiful garden is a great place to stroll around, or to just sit and relax. It is very popular with Christian pilgrims so can be busy at times.
