Owner description: Located outside the walls of Jerusalem, this beautiful garden among a grove of olive trees is thought to be the place where Jesus particularly enjoyed prayer and contemplation.

I didn't know Olive trees lived so long. I got a wonderful lecture on these amazing trees. I got to see the young tree planted by a Pope back in the 50's.

What's left of the Garden is smaller than I thought. However, it was amazing to see 1700 yr old olive trees (the "children" and "grandchildren" of the olive trees alive when Christ visited). Between the Garden and the associated church I found this a wonderful, meditative, respite in the midst of a busy day.

The Garden of Gethsemane is where Jesus Christ prayed before being led off to be crucified. A quite place to pray and meditate.

A sobering place to reflect on our Lord's sacrifice for us.
As you walk through are reminded of His great love for the world.

This garden was so pretty and peaceful. I loved this place above all. It just has a very calm and peaceful feeling about it!
