Amazing place. Better then we expected. You should have this as number one on your bucket list. A must see. People are changed after their visit here. Be sure to visit the chapel to the right as you come in up the stairs. Under the beautifully decorated alter is the rock the crucifixion took place on. You can touch it thru the hole under the alter. Do your research before visiting so you see it all. If you are Orthodox Christian inquire about the services. We were invited to divine liturgy. A truly unique experience. We can't recommend it enough.
Religion is not my cup of tea... I can't understand how people can fight of a peace of rock. There are far more important things humanity focus on instead, like world peace, global warming, hunger etc.
Interesting place to experience whether you are religious or not. The architecture is absolutely gorgeous. Marble columns and floors. Various priestly orders doing their rounds. It was a delight for the senses. The photos don't do it justice. If your in the Old City this is a must see!
Ongoing construction is distracting. I would have liked to see more signage since I did not have a tour guide. It would have been interesting to note which branches of the church are responsible for which part, for example.
