Never in all of my years on earth did I imagine that I would have the opportunity to pray in the Garden of Gethsemane. It was so peaceful and moving. You really felt at peace and serene while praying there.

Being a Christian, I was moved by this site the trees in the garden are extremely old. To know that Jesus stood in this garden and prayed was very moving.

Some of the olive trees in this garden are carbon-dated as 3500 years old. Amazing! They are called Witness Trees, because they were there when Jesus was taken from there by the soldiers.

You will see very old olive trees (one estimated to be 2000 years old) and it is not hard to image Jesus praying in this garden before His arrest. Quite a moving experience.

One of my very favorites in the Holy Land. Imagine walking by some of the same trees that observed Christ’s prayers. Amazing.

We arrived at dusk and got to stay into dark. It was rich in meaning to imagine what happened in this beautiful garden. Our guide, a Christian English gentleman, was the perfect host and guide. You sense peace and calmness here. Enjoy!

You won't forget the small garden at the foot of the Mount of Olives, and across the valley from the Old City.
