Garden Tomb in Jerusalem - Tomb of Jesus

Garden Tomb in Jerusalem - Tomb of Jesus
The Garden Tomb is a beautiful garden situated right outside the Old City Walls of Jerusalem. Traditionally, Protestants, evangelists, Anglicans and other reform churches believe this to be the site of Christ’s crucifixion, burial & resurrection. This is opposed to the belief, held by many Catholic, orthodox and Coptic denominations which deem the Church of the Holy Sepulchre to be the site of crucifixion and tomb of Jesus Christ. 

The tomb includes two burial niches and an entrance space which is known as the ‘weeping chamber’. The cross which can be seen on the wall between the tomb niches was painted sometime around the Byzantine and Crusader periods, most probably for Christian worship. Over the years the Tomb suffered damage due to earthquakes and no trace of the rolling stone was found in 1867 when the tomb was re-excavated.
