"And after this Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, besought Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave him leave. He came therefore, and took the body of Jesus.
And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about an hundred pound weight.
Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury.
Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet laid.
There laid they Jesus therefore because of the Jews` preparation day; for the sepulchre was nigh at hand.
(John,Chapter 19, 38-42)
Outside the walls of the city of Jerusalem, near the Damascus Gate in the Garden Tomb.
In 1883, General Gordon, a British officer discovered this hill and suggested that this site might indeed be an actual site of resurrection. Upon further investigation, it was realized that at the time of Jesus crucifixion, the cemetery was indeed outside the ancient city walls but in 44 AD Herod Agippa I laid the foundation of the present day north-eastern wall that Gordon mistakingly took for the original walls at the times of Jesus.
