"Now in this place where He was crucified there was a garden; and in a garden a new sepulchre wherein was never man yet laid." (John 19:41)
Enjoy the unique Garden Tomb near the Damascus Gate.
It is believed by many to be the location of the garden of Joseph of Arimathea, outside the city walls, and the tomb where Jesus Christ was laid after His crucifixion; and rose from death.
The Garden Tomb is a quiet place preserved for worship and reflection. There are places to sit, drinking water and toilet facilities, including provision for the disabled. Wheelchair access is good for a general tour of the Garden.
There is also a well-stocked gift shop with very reasonable prices.

May Protestants believe that Jesus is buried in the Garden Tomb, which is set in a quiet enclosure Just outside Damascus Gate. A nearby hillock, with a Moslem cemetery on top and a broken cistern in its rocky face, bears resemblance to a skull which could be Gologotha.
From the Damascus Gate of the Old City, cross the main street and walk straight up Nablus Road. The Garden Tomb is located on Conrad Schick Street, a narrow lane 400 metres up Nablus Road, on the right hand side. It is clearly signposted.
Open for tours and worship services every Monday to Saturday from 9:00 to noon and 14:00 to 17:30. Because the Garden is often busy, groups must book their visit in advance. This is usually done by the local tour company, or by the group�s licenced guide.
