The church is at the end of the Via Dolorosa, which is meant to the be the path that Jesus walked with the cross on his way to be crucified. The church has been built over the spot of the crucifixion, burial and resurrection. Whether or not you believe it is not the actual place of occurrence it is deeply poignant. For christian believers this church marks the most poignant part of their faith and for this reason this ancient church is very beautiful. Modest clothing would be respectful.

We went here on a bus tour to Jerusalem on Easter Monday. The city was packed and so was the church. There were visitors from many nations there. It's an inspirational and beautiful site that was first begun in the 4th century. The church was packed, but it's a once in a lifetime experience.

The church represents the place where Jesus is thought to have been buried, and it does feel like most of the world wants to be in there. Very busy when we visited, but still there was a sense of peace about the place. Fascinating to watch people getting very excited about the various iconic symbols including the replica of a stone on which his body may have lain... A must see place, but the queue to go into the tomb put us off, so be prepared to queue if you're keen to do that.

Seeing this ancient history of a place where Jesus Christ of Nazareth was laid after his death upon the cross was a wonderful experience and I would suggest a must see if you're visiting the old city of Jerusalem. It was busy and there's a lot of walking to get there but again it's...

Seeing this ancient history of a place where Jesus Christ of Nazareth was laid after his death upon the cross was a wonderful experience and I would suggest a must see if you're visiting the old city of Jerusalem. It was busy and there's a lot of walking to get there but again it's all worth it. Shorts & mini's are not allowed.
