This is a nice location for people to see an old tomb. They also have a nice gift shop. The people here are very friendly and are always open to questions and comments.

This is a beautiful garden that is a pleasant retreat from the noise and crowds in Jerusalem. More importantly, the people who volunteer their time as guides at the Garden Tomb are wonderful. I have visited the Garden Tomb twice - the first visit was four years ago. Each time I have had the opportunity to visit the site was part of an archaeological tour of Israel. While the Tomb is probably not the correct date to have been Jesus' Tomb, neither of our guides claimed that it was. The beauty of their stories was their love of Christ that radiated through the tour they led through the Garden. It is a moving experience. It is a beautiful place with lovely people. I highly recommend it.

This is a very moving and peaceful place. A time to stop and contemplate the life and death of Jesus. It can get crowded at times but somehow you tune that out and thank God for the opportunity to visit this place.

Entry to the gardens is free.

Tour the locations where it is thought that jesus was crucified and enter the tomb where it is thought Jesus was laid to rest.

Words cannot explain the emotion that many feel during this visit.

I like gardens and I found this one very pleasant. Is this the place of Jesus's tomb? It would be nice to think so. It is quite crowded but not unbearably so. You may find quite a number of people queueing to see the tomb itself but if you leave it until shortly before they close, the crowds clear and it becomes quite peaceful
