Pilgrims and curious travelers alike visit Garden of Gethsemane, where the Gospels of Mark and Matthew claim that Jesus slept the night before his capture by the Romans. This olive grove, at the base of the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, contains some trees that recent scientific dating found at least a millennium old. The Franciscan order has held responsibility for the site since 1361. You can visit during Mass, or offer prayers in solitude inside the basilica at the garden's edge.

Visiting the place, made me want to cry. It felt like Holy Ground. I wish I could have stayed the whole day. more »
The garden is nothing special, small and maintained, next to it there is a church, the architecture is nice. Make sure to visit the grotto next to this opposite church. One of a kind.
Worth going when you’re in Jerusalem. I guess, if you’re religious, especially of Christian faith of course, this place will definitely please you as according to the gospels Jesus is believed to have prayed in agony and was arrested the night before his crucifixion.
