"The Garden Tomb" Garden Tomb Tip by wilocrek

Garden Tomb, Jerusalem: 9 reviews and 18 photos

Located just north of the Damascus Gate, the Garden Tomb is yet another hypothetical burial place of Jesus Christ. However the Garden Tomb location makes the most sense as a logical burial place due to its location, its very visually pleasing. This is a major Christian tourist hub so be prepared to share the site with a endless stream of tour groups. The entire site is shrouded in trees and bushes and seems entirely cut off from the city, which is exactly what one would expect. Its a very peaceful place to visit even with all the tour groups, in fact most groups hold religious services where they will pray and sing hymns and even if you don't agree with their brand of Christianity the singing adds to the ambience of the place. There is no admission fee.
