Owner description: Located outside the walls of Jerusalem, this beautiful garden among a grove of olive trees is thought to be the place where Jesus particularly enjoyed prayer and contemplation.

Very nice and charming place in east jerusalem on the mount of olives. The garden is magnificent and has a lot to say. The olive trees in the garden are one of a kind, i have never seen such unique trees.

The garden is next to the Church of the Agony (also known as the Church of All Nations).

Very peaceful site and a beautiful church. Beautiful murals. The church is built around the stones from the garden.

This is the real Garden Of Gethsemane. You can see worshippers from around the world praying and connecting with their spiritual self. The church right next to it reflects this somber mood

I loved this Garden. Though you cannot walk through it, it really feels pretty much undisturbed and I had a sense of the garden very much as it may have been. It was very peaceful here, and the old gnarly trees were so interesting I took many pictures.

The Garden is located at the base of the Mount of Olives. It is a nice place to visit, and you are told that some of the trees were alive 2000 years ago, but it is essentially only a dozen trees you walk past on a walkway, While there, you should see the Church of All Nations.
