Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Jerusalem

4.4
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. Put Church of the Holy Sepulchre on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Jerusalem tour planner .

  • For Christians one of the most holy spots in the world. The crucifixion shrine and Jesus' burial cave. Be sure you don't wear any shorts since you're not able to enter the site. Besides this place being of significance for Christians, the construction of the outside church is absolutely astonishing. Well worth the visit.

  • What an intense place. Prayers in so many languages and so many cultures. Beautiful if you just stop and look. Queues were too long, even on a few visits.
  • The most holy spot in the world, here the salvation was made, The dept was paid full, the sin you made is taken by the most loving father who sacrificed his only son to give you life and salvation and eternal life with him in his heaven. Crucified, died, but he is risen from the dead victorious and glorified
