The Garden Tomb

Archaeology and History

In 1884 the British General Gordon identified this site as Golgotha. Subsequent excavations at the site revealed a tomb with a rolling stone and nearby elements of an ancient garden, completing the picture of Jesus burial place in John 19. On a visit to the Garden Tomb, people set aside any archaeological debate for the atmosphere of peace and the beauty of the gardens. The guides are gracious and there is ample room to hold church services.
