The Garden Tomb in Jerusalem is a very interesting landmark to visit.
The site is located not far from Damascus gate, in front of the old city wall in adjacent to Nablus road.
“Golgotha” translates as “the places of the Skull” and ever since Christ’s burial site was known as “the skull hill.
While most Christians identify the nearby Church of the Holy Sepulchre as the true site of Golgotha, a growing number of Christians and Scholars identify the Tomb Garden in Jerusalem as the true site.
Therefore, the site has become a popular site of pilgrimage for many Christians.
The site is a very peaceful place to visit and is maintained by volunteers.
If you are looking for an authentic place for your visit to Jerusalem, this one is highly recommended.
When you visit the Holy Land and book a Private tour with our Christian tour guide, you can actually include that place in your tour.
