This tomb was discovered in 1867, at which time it was proposed that this was the burial place of Jesus, mainly because of its nearness to "Gordon's Calvary". Since that time, some Protestant piety has encouraged this identification, although the wardens of the property (The Garden Tomb Association) stress that it is the resurrection of Jesus, not the issue of finding the exact spot of his burial, that is important.
Inside of the tomb are the partial remains of a burial bench.
