Garden of Gethsemane The Garden of Gethsemane is believed to be where Jesus was the night after the Last Supper. rating : 3.5 3.5 0 out of 5 / 14 votes

The Garden of Gethsemane, at the foot of the Mount of Olives, is believed to be the place Jesus came to with his disciples the night after the Last Supper. Gethsemane is a Greek word meaning olive-oil press and this seems to have been what was here when Jesus passed through. It is quite fascinating to see olive trees that were probably mere saplings in Jesus' time.

The neighboring Church of all Nations was built in the twenties and pictorially relays the events that took place here in stunning mosaics that reach from the floor to the ceiling.

Across the lane is a less-frequented grove and visitors often arrange to spend some private time there in worship and contemplation.
