Jerusalem, the city of gold, the city of Zion, the city of David, so many names have been given to the city where all religions meet, and where the spirit is in every stone.

I’ll try to walk with you in Jerusalem as if it was a private tour guide, and I’ll try to bring you as much information you need about the place .

 The place was identified as the burial place of Jesus by Charles Gordon in 1833, according to the evangelical Protestant tradition …..

 The Garden is charming, green, open, welcoming, and must be registered before arriving.

 It is located right in front of the Damascus Gate.

 It is placed outside the walls.

 The nearby hill looks exactly like a skull.

 According to archaeological evidence the garden is an agricultural garden and inside it was a tomb

 Crucifixions were usually made in central and bustling places, and we know that right in front of you passed a main road to the city of Nablus and Damascus, this is the city center, a Roman forum was also built here.

 Next in the garden were large cisterns that contained 250,000 gallons of water.

 And of course, a tomb estate that is probably from the First Temple period gives us proof that this is indeed the true Golgotha
