The draw of this spot is not so much the physical space but what is means to Christians. It is not an impressive place except for the incredibly ancient olive trees with trunks that must be close to 20' in circumference. The olive tree was of such a profound importance to the Jews throughout the history of the Bible. The... More

BEAUTIFUL gardens. Opportunities for private group rentals for prayer and worship time in the garden. Beautiful experience. You do not want to miss the opportunity for private worship and prayer in the garden!

The garden is very famous for many things involving Jesus a must place to visit although it is not particularly beautiful. The olive trees are impressive and are very old. A church has been constructed as a memorial on site and well worth a visit.

We were blessed to have mass at this location. The church is built on the rock where Jesus' prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane. Because there are masses, you will not always be able to get close to the rock, but the power of the place is felt, nonetheless.

So great to sit and pray in the garden. Surrounded by old olive trees and in such close proximity to Jerusalem. This is a must see when in Jerusalem.

Tranquil garden filled with ancient olive trees. The adjacent church has amazingly beautiful mosaics -- not to be missed

This place really does take you back in your mind to where Jesus prayed regularly. Again, no one knows for sure if it's the original place but that it definitely, probably , maybe could be. You'll hear that a lot if you get a good tour guide! Enjoyed this place immensely!!

Had to get key from Monks, but allowed to have quiet time here. A must see. Wear sensible shoes and plan to be by yourself.

If you are a Christian, this place is emotional and moving. It was where Christ prayed before he was betrayed by Judas and led to crucifixion. It is a somber place to pray and reflect on one's own life. The church of all nations is also worth seeing, no photos allowed.
