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.

You just cannot go to Jerusalem and not visit this area. A lot to see all around you and worth taking a little time here to take all in what is around you.

It was a beautiful spiritual experience even for those who are not strongly religious, the historical experience is as valuable as the spiritual experience.

Be relaxed. Give yourself emotions. Do not forget to pray for yourself and your loved ones.Focus on the place, its smell and significance. Forget about taking pictures. If you really want to, do it when you leave the church.

The specific definition of sepulcher (pronounced sep-ul-ker) is a burial vault or receptacle for sacred relics, especially in an altar. Since many do not consider Jesus the Messiah, this is unambiguously known as the Tomb of Jesus, thus the Holy Sepulcher. As a born Christian,...More

This is the reason many Christians come to the Holy Land, so emotions run high. Pilgrims want to touch, to pray, to feel closer to God. Sometimes it's hard to remember this as you try to take in all the beauty and history of the...More
