One of the most impressive gardens in Jerusalem. It contains olive trees dated 1000 to 2000 years ago. One tree trunk is dated from the days of Jesus.

It is religious site. No charge for entry. Only some postcard sellers outside. Like all churches there will be a donation box if you wish to leave something.
