Seeing the skull mountain and hearing more about the probably site of the crucifixion was only topped by seeing the probably tomb of Christ. Having communion was very special. However, the communion sites were very sunny and extremely hot. Got a sunburn through my clothes.

The garden tomb is a must see for Christians visiting Jerusalem. The site is only a few blocks from the Damascus Gate. The area leading to it looks a little rough but once inside it is beautiful.
