Garden Tomb

The Garden Tomb is a rock-cut tomb which was unearthed in 1867 and has subsequently been considered by many Christians to be the site of the burial and resurrection of Jesus.

It lies just outside the old city walls, directly north of the Damascus Gate (Sha'ar Shkhem) and the Via Dolorosa.

It is adjacent to a skull-like rocky escarpment, thought to be Golgotha in Aramaic or Calvary in Latin — words that mean "Place of the Skull".
