Join millions of pilgrims who make their way to Church of the Holy Sepulchre, a deeply significant Christian landmark dating back to the 4th century CE. Christians believe the church contains both the site of Jesus' crucifixion and the tomb in which he was buried and resurrected. Several Christian denominational groups share ownership of the church--you can see the blending of their traditions and cultures within, as you navigate the maze of rooms and halls. Dress modestly and prepare for a potentially long line at the entrance.

  • Wonderfully complex, with lots of little hidden attractions as well as the 'big' sights of Calvary and the Tomb. Shame about the queues to see the Tomb, and the renovation scaffolding which blocked ou...  more »
  • A church that stood for perhaps the style that I don't know, a style which is not that of the churches we have in Italy but I liked

  • Ooooh! the road to the temple as a point of interest! Narrow streets, old paved road, beautiful stone arches. very unusual feelings arise! And in the temple and even more so! If you do not consider it from the perspective of faith, very interesting to consider its most distant corners, huge inside cracks in stone walls, columns. And if all the same immersed in religious history, the goosebumps! Liked it all, despite the crowds of believers who would grovel foreheads to all popadajushhemusja are on their way!

  • Visited a few times. The the holiest place I have ever been to so far. The atmosphere is unforgettable. The area was smaller that I've expected. Lots to see and to feel in such a tiny area.
  • Asssalam walek ya Nabi Isa (as). The complex marks the tomb of jesus christ In Islam and christianty.
  • Amazing architecture, relatively small structure.... Especially compared to cathedrals in Europe. A great way to get out if the hot sun. Be way that there are some super steep steps/staircases... And some sections are actually pretty trying to walk up and down as they descend about 30 feet/ 10 meters. A lot to see in a small area, so it gets really packed even at, let's say, 11am on a Tues. As for most sites in Jerusalem, I think it's best to visit at night. I think there's even a 3am mass.
  • On the tourist route. Interesting one or vice started delving into the history and current tensions between various Christian sects managing the site
