The Tomb of Jesus - the Garden Tomb in Jerusalem

The Tomb of Jesus in the Garden Tomb in Jerusalem, beleived by millions to be the true site of Christ's crucifixion, burial and resurrection. 

 

The Garden Tomb is believed by many to be the garden and sepulcher of Joseph of Arimathea. Therefore, many believe it is a possible site of the resurrection of Jesus. The Garden is owned and administered by The Garden Tomb (Jerusalem) Association.

The Garden Tomb located in Jerusalem, outside the city walls and close to the Damascus Gate. It is a rock-cut tomb, adjacent to Golgotha (also known as Gordon's Calvary).

This contradicts the traditional site for these two sites—the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. There is no mention of the Garden Tomb as Jesus's burial place before the 19th century.

The Garden Tomb is a quiet place for meditation and worship. Visitors sit in the garden and conduct their religious ceremonies. The beautiful gardens provide a quiet, serene and picturesque backdrop for these activities, and tours of the garden are provided to visitors from around the world.
