Owner description: Located outside the walls of Jerusalem, this beautiful garden among a grove of olive trees is thought to be the place where Jesus particularly enjoyed prayer and contemplation.

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.

At the foot of the Mount of Olives, you will find the Garden of Gethsemane, where Jesus prayed so earnestly before being arrested, condemned, beaten, and crucified. As olive trees survive fire, flood, and ax, some of the trees in the garden date back to Jesus' day, so He could have prayed underneath one of them. While the trees in the garden are fenced off, there is one tree you are actually allowed to touch.

Beautiful trees of over 2000 yrs of age. Quiet and beautiful. HOwever, many tourist come through and the trees are now surrounded by a fence so you cannot touch them.

Combine this visit with a trip to the mountain and the church of Mary.
The church has a beautiful decorated sealing.
The garden where Jesus got betrayed is the spot where the more dan 3000 year old olive trees are standing.
You need to wear covering clothes out of respect.

A beautifully kept garden where Christ is said to have spent his final hours in prayer before his trial and execution. Unfortunately, the day we visited it was filled with tour groups and was too crowded and noisy to be a quiet place for meditation.
