Standing here among trees that are over 2000 years old is humbling. Given the hundreds of thousands of tourists each year, it is very well maintained and remains awe inspiring. The spring flowers were in bloom under the trees and so it was spectacular to see.

No religious tour is complete without a visit to this location. It is as important as the Mount of Olives.

Hard to believe the olive trees may have stood there with Christ in his agony. The church is beautiful.

The Garden of Gethsemane is an amazing place to visit. You will walk where Jesus is said to have walked and been betrayed. You will see thousand year old olive trees. There is no cost or dress code. Do not miss.

I was very moved by being here. There are a few trees in this garden that are believed to be over 2000 years old which would mean they were there when Jesus prayed here. This was just a very moving place for me

We visited the Garden of Gethsemane en route from the Church of St Mary Magdalena & the Church of All Nations. We were astounded to see massive Olive Trees that have indeed been Scientifically Tested and shown to be around 2000 Years Old. The garden is of course the place where Jesus Christ was betrayed by Judas as portrayed in... More

I have visited the Garden of Gethsemane many times but on this occassion had my whole family with me. The remaining trees are so old and tell their own story of what happened here 2,000 years ago when Jesus retreated to this site to pray.

The draw of this spot is not so much the physical space but what is means to Christians. It is not an impressive place except for the incredibly ancient olive trees with trunks that must be close to 20' in circumference. The olive tree was of such a profound importance to the Jews throughout the history of the Bible. The... More

BEAUTIFUL gardens. Opportunities for private group rentals for prayer and worship time in the garden. Beautiful experience. You do not want to miss the opportunity for private worship and prayer in the garden!

The garden is very famous for many things involving Jesus a must place to visit although it is not particularly beautiful. The olive trees are impressive and are very old. A church has been constructed as a memorial on site and well worth a visit.
