The Holy Sepulchre is the place identified as the site of the crucifixion and entombment of Jesus Christ. This is perhaps the most significant place in the history of Christianity making it one of the major places of pilgrimage for devout Christians from all over the world. It was built in the 4th century and rebuilt in the 7th century.
The site is composed of multiple chapels administered by Catholic, Greek Orthodox, and Armenian Orthodox caretakers, among others. By the entrance, guests can see the slab of marble where the body of Christ was believed to have been lain after he was crucified. Right of the entrance is the flight of stairs going to the Greek Orthodox area and the place believed to be the site of the crucifixion. To the left of the entrance is the site believed to be where he was entombed.
The church can get crowded before lunch and during the afternoons so guests are advised to come early to avoid the surge in foot traffic.Places nearby:
