It had been quite an experience being there. Amazing how the trees are still alive, the site very clean and well-maintained.

But they could have done more to keep it a garden, or should I say less(!?) There is a big church built there, stone walkway around the garden and a big iron fence - so you dont really feel like you are in a "garden."...More

To be where Jesus actually was on the night before he was betrayed, looking at the 2000 year old olive trees and reading the simple verses from the Bible gave a deep experience of the meaning of Jesus sacrifice for us.

Don't let the busyness of a tour rob you of a precious, holy visit to the Garden of Gethsemane. Take you Bible and read the account of Jesus' last hours. Sit and pray and thank Him for His sacrifice for you.

If you are a believer in Jesus Christ, this is the place for you. Spiritually, this garden spoke to me. It’s a great place to go and pray and let your mind imagine Jesus on these grounds. I would say out of all the places...More
