    Here we find millenary olive trees.
    This garden is important for Christian believers, because here our Lord Jesus Christ rested and prayed, before being arrested by the guards.

    The Garden Tomb is believed to be the site of the burial of Jesus. The location is related to Jerusalem. The site of the Garden Tomb is supported by evangelical Christians, and Mormons. Orthodox Christians support the Holy Sepulcher as the site of Christ's. resurrection. The Garden Tomb is interesting.

    There is probably no better relaxation from the city's hustle and bustle than going to a park in the heart of the city. The Jerusalem Botanica Garden is an oasis of peace and tranquility, featuring over 6000 species of trees, plants, shrubs from the Middle East to Europe, arranged along winding trails and resting points to admire the scenery. Very well signed as well, taking the visitor around circular paths, including a lovely greenhouse that exhibits desert vegetation. A real pleasure for individuals and families alike. A tip for visitors arriving by cab. Make sure that you have arranged a pick-up back, or have a Get Taxi application on your phone, as the entrance is pretty distant from the main road. The admission fee for senior citizens is INS 25, ( 40 for adults).

    Entrance is free. There are of course the roses. Every rose bush has its name. There are shown with their original country, or with their shape. There is a pond and a Japanese garden, also e small waterfall. Birds like this place, and is not rare to be joined by a hoopoe. Many paths lead to the park. On Friday morning you see groups of people enjoying the fresh air doing tai-chi. One thing you do not find....noise!

    Scenic views and panoramas of Jerusalem - handy to get your bearings of the city and see iconic landmarks high up on the hill. Gardens uneventful tho!

    MY EXPERIENCE
    I was there last night, 2200h on a warm evening of the “sand of the season” of the Passover holiday. It was incredibly crowded and packed with families of revelers, incredibly noisy, incredibly active- to the point that it was difficult to navigate the main pathways without being blocked by large families with big multiple seat strollers, huge men who had had too much barbecue meat (see my “helpful “ photos), and little children unsupervised on all kinds and varieties of mobile riding toys, as well as pedal and motorized bicycles dangerously weaving their way through the packed crowds of holiday celebrants…. And that didn’t begin to comment on all the barbecues (against park regulations) with their wafting fragrances… and the litter.

    One new incredible addition since my last visit (and TripAdvisor review of 2019) is the gigantic massive construction of many many climbing and hanging toys, swings and tunnel sliding boards that are maybe up to almost 8 meters high (or more)- it is quite massive, and draws and attracts many many of those young, and young at heart.

    TIP
    Go, but not on a holiday

    Great water reservoir, huge even for today view, remained from ancient Jerusalem water delivery infrastructure. Two thousand years from Herod's time doesn't destroyed elements of water system. The water reservoir is open and could be clearly seen in the park (old cemetery) opposite Waldorf-Astoria hotel, the remains of water delivery tunnels could be seen in the Independence park ("Gan Ha-Azmaut"). Worth to see and imagine the scale of ancient structures.

    Spent some time walking through this beautiful garden early in the morning. We were with a group doing a Holy Land tour and this was a good spot to contemplate and discuss some scriptures. You get great views of the Old City and the walls surrounding plus the garden itself is well maintained and provides well done paths to walk.
