Worth seeing and spending some peaceful time here. You can write a prayer on a blank prayer rock with one of their Sharpie pens (or bring your own) and place the rock in their prayer garden. My prayer was answered!

I frequently pass near The Coming King Sculpture Prayer Garden, and I had not visited. I had a friend visiting, so we decided to go. They are preparing for Easter Celebrations, so we had to enter a different way. I must say that I was favorably impressed with what has already been done. The Empty Cross is huge! At night,... More

My wife and I visited this sculpture garden while visiting Kerrville. We were impressed with the garden and the message that it is sharing with the world around it!

I went twice - once alone and once with my 22-year-old son so he could see this. This is not a fancy place, just breathtaking, and I don't mean just the view. I felt such a sense of peace and awe. The statues are detailed and beautiful. (Don't miss one of the best at the bottom of the hill, on... More

It had been over two years since last visiting here so it was a pleasant surprise to see the latest additions to the park the other day. It now has a prayer rock garden with thousands of white rocks with prayers written on them by visitors. Make sure to take a marker and small donation. The fountain is magnificent so... More

The cross is enormous but lakes uniqueness, I did not find the sculptures special or pieces of art. May be people who come there for religious reason feel differently.

This holy garden is fantastic. Very beautiful place with well done sculptures and large cross. As I walked the area, I felt all my tensions and problems disappear and a calm come over me. Would have liked to stay longer. They are continually improving the area and will definitely visit again.

Many sculptures grace this land with a walk way of scriptures leading up to the empty cross!!! It then tells of how the cross came to be and who donated the land and a prayer garden of prayer stones.......A very holy place where the presence of God is truly felt!!! A must see!!
