The garden is located at the edge of the Kidron Valley in Jerusalem. The meaning of name of the site in Aramaic (Gat Shmaním) suggests that in Second Jewish Temple times this was a winepress and an oil mill site. According to the four Gospels of the New Testament, this is where Jesus underwent the agony in the garden and where he was arrested by the Romans the night before his crucifixion. According to the Christian Orthodox belief this is also the place from where Mary, mother of Jesus went up to heaven. The walls of the Old City can be seen in the background.
