We visited on a pilgrimage, and this is a very rewarding spiritual site, but my focus in this review is on photography. First, the basics: it is crowded and there will be lines controlling access to the sacred locations, so be flexible and travel with minimal gear. Second, on this visit my gear was a pocket camera with flash off, high ISO and white balance adjusted for lighting. Many people were using I-Phones with good results. Look around since this is a complex building with small chapels inside. Remember to take wide-angles that show context and then zoom in for closeups. Expect post-processing at home afterwards.

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre is one of the most Holy and Sacred places in Jerusalem, or actually in all of Christendom! The Church of the Holy Sepulchre may be the most sacred places for anyone to visit in Jerusalem; although at times the lines of Pilgrims and crowds of reverent worshippers may be somewhat distracting, one cannot be in awe of what occurred there and what Our Lord suffered there. The Church of the Holy Sepulchre may be the single most important reason to visit the Holy Land and a visit there is certain to leave anyone with a hushed and powerful feeling for the sanctity of the place. I have been blessed to have been able to visit the Church of the Holy Sepulchre on two occasions: each tome I was filled with inspiration and the feeling of awe for the sanctity of the Church. I hope I will be able to visit again, sometime, but feel that my life was changed by even my first two visits!
