Although it has a natural garden that has been there for thousands of years (it is watered by an underground spring-see Joh 19:41 “Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new tomb wherein was never man yet laid ”.), and it is very close from Golgotha (you can almost see Golgotha from it), some say it is not the type of tomb used in Jesus’ day. The Garden Tomb is an oasis from the heat and desert atmosphere of the climate. There are tables and benches in the shade where visitors can reflect, read, converse. Even places for church services. Lots of plants and the traditional garden tomb. Visitors can enter the tomb and take pictures. If you go to the end and right, you can see Golgotha above the Arab bus station. Free admission.
