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.

Church Of The Holy Sepulchre, Jerusalem Reviews

  • An amazing edifice, with multiple chapels for the various Catholic and Orthodox communities which share this holy site. A Muslim is the doorkeeper, a traditional neutral party among the Christians. Very moving to visit the place where God spilled His Blood to save mankind from eternal damnation. Exquisite sacred art adorns every nook and cranny.

  • It's amazing-- and a ton to see inside. It lacks the vast scale of St.Peter's in the Vatican, but it makes up for it with its significance. Take the time to see the whole thing if you can, or at least all the major areas-- some are grand, some are done in intricate stone, others in paint and gold... Beware it's overwhelmed at times with both pilgrims and tourists, so expect to deal with crowds.

  • We attended 4:30am Mass &Communion at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in the Old City of Jerusalem. There were 13 persons in attendance. Our Priest questioned how many would receive Communion. Show of Hands was unanimous. The Mass was celebrated in both Latin & English. The surrounding aura defies description in Words! This aura remains with us to date. Every moment was Sacred. Highly advise to visit. Good health is required. The walk from the Hotel at 4:00am was about 20 minutes and we felt especially safe. A Most Blessed Lifetime Experience.

  • This place is my favourite place on EARTH, it was my childhood brining up. Every time I enter the Holy Sepulchre as if it is my 1st time. The energy of love is felt and there. Tourists from all over the world with different languages are filling the place. You feel HEAVEN on EARTH

  • Phenomenal architecture. Worth a visit even if you're not Christian. Entrance looks very unassuming, but once you step inside you would be amazed.
