Stand inside the 7' center chamber of the 77'7" tall, $2,000,000 Resurrection cross located on the 1930' mountain in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. "The Empty Cross" has been described as the most scripturally symbolic cross ever created. Experience God's presence, love, power, mercy, forgiveness and miracles as you read through the plaques affixed to the inside walls of the magnificent cross. The 77’ Kerrville Cross is the centerpiece of The Sculpture Prayer Garden still being developed as a gift to the community and to the Kingdom of God. The admission to experience this unique attraction is FREE. Hours open to the public: 6 AM to 12 Midnight; Open All Year!

The admission is free and the work is awesome. The iron cross is 300 feet high. If you have a chance, go for it.

This is a very humbling and impressive site to visit. It is well done, represents the Christian and Jewish faiths very well and appears to still be expanding. The creator of this exhibit is to be congratulated.

Hello, I was wondering of the sun ever shines through the cross? If so what time does that usually happen? are you allowed to take pictures there with a DSLR camera? is it open all of the time? can I bring a flash if I need one? can I bring photography equipment on the property? when does it open? what time are the church services? i don't want to interrupt any services.
