Stand inside the 7' center chamber of the 77'7" tall, $2,000,000 Resurrection cross located on the 1930' mountain in the heart of the Texas Hill Country.

Experience God's presence, love, power, mercy, forgiveness and miracles as you read through the plaques affixed to the inside walls of the magnificent cross. The 77’ Kerrville Cross is the centerpiece of The Sculpture Prayer Garden still being developed as a gift to the community and to the Kingdom of God. The admission to experience this unique attraction is FREE. Hours open to the public: 6 AM to 12 Midnight; Open All Year!

You immediately feel peaceful when you see this place. What a testament to the Christian faith. There will be more added as money becomes available but this is worth stopping. Beautiful setting.

The admission is free and the work is awesome. The iron cross is 300 feet high. If you have a chance, go for it.

The parking is just a level below where the garden is but it is accessible. My mom uses a walker and was able to easily walk.
