“AND 2000 YR OLD OLIVE TREES”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2012

We waited a while in line of the many visitors walking slowly through the entrance gate and around the garden of olive trees which seem to be sad ... a beautiful and unforgetful the site and view of the Temple Mount and Old City.

“Nice Olive garden”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2012

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 Can a Christian Say?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2012

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.

“A place of prayer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2012

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