Overview

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre, also called the Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre, or the Church of the Resurrection by Eastern Christians, is a church within the Christian Quarter of the walled Old City of Jerusalem. It is a few steps away from the Muristan. The site is venerated as Golgotha (the Hill of Calvary), where Jesus was crucified, and is said also to contain the place where Jesus was buried (the Sepulchre). A trend among visitors to the spot (standing outside the Church) is to applaud loudly during the ringing of bells. This is to recognize the unique beauty of the Church and its unique history.

This is the place that was offered by Nicodimous to put the body of Jesus. You can see the tomb where he stayed for 3 days until his ressurection...

If you want to visit the tomb, prepare for a long line and equally long wait. Church is interesting and you can touch the stone of atonement.

It gives a special feeling to visit such a holy place. It was quite crowded at times, but we were happy to be able to get there.

Alomost as you leave the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, you see people prostrated on or near a piece of marble. This is believed to be the first resting place for Jesus. You are pulled some how to touch it and pray.

Although I have a problem with buildings/churches built over a historical site, you just need to use your imagination, to experience this site.
