Church Of The Holy Sepulchre - Review

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre contains the 2 holy sites of Christianity - the ‘Calvary’ where Jesus was crucified and the empty tomb where he was buried and believed to have resurrected.

The entrance of the church is where you will find the Anointing Stone where Jesus was laid down to be prepared for his burial. Visitors rub oil on the stone and kiss it as a mark of respect.

Mythology and history really do breathe life into the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and missing a visit here is simply missing out on a huge part of Jerusalem.

  • Reportedly built by Helena, King Constantine’s mother, this church is even older than the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul! A very interesting place even if for a non-Archaeologist ......... Open to all faith and a Atheist. A must to visit when one is in a Jerusalem.

  • It's a very spiritual and holy place. There are so many denominations of Christianity come to this church and worship Jesus Christ. Everyone come here from any corners of the world. Easter or the Passover season is the best time to come and visit. There are Thousands and thousands of Christianity come here and celebrate the resurrection of Christ. Please come and experience the tranquility and spiriture for yourself. You will feel the present of Christ in your heart and feel happy.

  • As a Catholic who's no longer practicing, this church really brought back some familiar feels. The focal point is at the entrance--the stone in which Jesus was laid after he was taken down from the cross. Definitely worth visiting to get a different aspect of the Old City.

  • This is the most important place for Christianity and the world history. Although some of the "facts" are questionable, this place reminds to the visitors about Jesus's life, death, and resurrection. Thousands of people come here every day to touch Holy places and articles. The particular picture shows the "bellybutton" of the Earth.

  • Otherworld beauty, haunting. From the outside to walking around the inside, full of history and intrigue. Saw a ceremony with chanting, echoing inside the great church.
