It’s beautiful here with a beautiful church but if you only have a short time I think you can just imagine where Jesus was camping the night before he died. Would be more special if it was not so crowded . Maybe go super early...More

Beautiful olive trees, so well preserved. Easy to imagine Christ praying here on His last night before His crucifixion. Great place to visit and reflect.

The historical and biblical importance of the Garden of Gethsemane makes it a must visit when going to Jerusalem. It is important to know that its located outside the old city so in hot weather the walk may be a bit uncomfortable.

If you are on this side of the city, then go see where Jesus prayed on the night before his death; see the olive trees and garden space that were most like the landscape he walked through.

Next to the Church of All Nations and bustling Jericho Road, the garden provides a calming effect on everyone who passes. The original root stock is believed to be over 2,000 years old.
