The Garden Tomb is believed by many to be the garden and sepulchre of Joseph of Arimathea, and therefore a possible site of the resurrection of Jesus. The Garden is owned and administered by The Garden Tomb (Jerusalem) Association, a Charitable Trust based in the United Kingdom.
The Garden Tomb is a quiet place preserved for worship and reflection. There are places to sit, drinking water and toilet facilities, including provision for the disabled. Wheelchair access is good for a general tour of the Garden. There is also a well-stocked gift shop with very reasonable prices.
From the Damascus Gate of the Old City, cross the main street and walk straight up Nablus Road. The Garden Tomb is located on Conrad Schick Street, a narrow lane 400 metres up Nablus Road, on the right hand side. It is clearly signposted.
Scheduling A Visit
All visitors are welcome, and we provide free self-guide leaflets in many languages. Groups are taken round by our English-speaking guides, but we must have advance notice. Because it is a quiet place preserved for worship and meditation, we don't allow eating, smoking or use of mobile phones.
There is no entrance fee. The Garden and its ministry are supported by the voluntary gifts of visitors.
The Garden is open for tours and worship services every Monday to Saturday from 08:30 to 12:00 and 14:00 to 17:30. Because the Garden is often busy, groups must book their visit in advance. This is usually done by the local tour company, or by the group's licensed guide.
