Golgotha Hill, also known as Calvary. Gol’gotha means skull in various languages. In the Gospel of St John: ‘So they took Jesus, and he went out, bearing his own cross, to the place called the place of a skull, which is called in Hebrew Gol’gotha’.
Golgotha, known today as Skull Hill, is a cliff resembling the eyes of a skull. Nearby is an ancient rock-cut tomb known today as the Garden Tomb which contains several ancient burial places.
