Again another place that is pretty verified to be where Jesus walked… it is smaller than I thought and, of course, marked off so that you look more at the Garden than walking amongst the trees which is understandable to protect the area. We did not have crowds and we got to be there pretty much alone. In regular crowded times, I would go very early to have the place more to myself,

Visiting the place, made me want to cry. It felt like Holy Ground. I wish I could have stayed the whole day.

This is a significant biblical site to see but it is not as impressive as I had expected. Trip advisor requires 100 characters but there is not much to say. It was a block with some olive trees. Not very impressive to see but has a great deal of biblical significance.

This place was beautiful. We were able to meditate on the Gospel and see trees that were there when Christ was praying. A must see!

We visited on a pilgrimage as did lots of other people. So, we walked around the perimeter of the garden, a collection of olive trees, some very old, in single file and briefly stopped for pictures. The interior of the garden is off-limits. If you are an amateur photographer, expect to have crowds and only a few minutes to grab shots. My advice: travel light with a pocket camera or a DSRL with a zoom lens, take a lot of pictures and expect to delete the bad ones later. There is not much contrast in the trees and their leaves. Post-processing for contrast may be needed.

The Garden of Gethsemane is one of the most important and significant attractions on the Mount of Olives. Unlike the other churches and memorial holy places on the Mount of Olives, all developed and reconstructed in more modern times, The Garden of Gethsemane remains natural and much less "developed". The huge old olive trees in the garden are so old that one can imagine them to be the actual original trees that Our Lord prayed and taught under during His life on earth over 2,000 years ago.
I found the Garden of Gethsemane to be very moving and spiritual, and thought provoking.

We arrived here walking down from Dominus Flevit in Mount of Olives; it's just beside the Church of All Nations. See ancient olive trees here known to science. The garden is rather small when we walked around thru it going to the Church of Agony.

The olive trees were old and gnarly looking. Probably not worth a visit on its own, but combined with the church and Mary's tomb, it's worth the walk.

I was really looking forward to seeing this site because of its importance to history, religion and importance, in general. I felt very moved as I walked through this Garden area filled with olive trees that are ancient. Very revered place to visit, and the church was beautiful, too.
