Very holy, but so crowded

It is hard to catch the spiritual nature of this place with the hoards of people and the pushing and shoving. For me it was worth fighting upstairs to see the site of the crucifixion, but i could not get to the tomb. The chapels around the tomb were meaningful.

A visit here is a must, a once in a life time experience, in order to be part of the modern western history and culture. For Christians this is the new Temple Mount, where the crucifixion and the victory of Jesus over evil brought a new dawn to man-kind. A few interesting facts about the Holy Sepulchre: 1. The entrance door is facing south and not east.. probably the only Church in the world. 2. The keys to the door of the church is held by a muslim family for many generations. 3. According to the christian tradition the center of the world is within the church.

It is the strangest church in the world, since it is not just a church, there are several churches in the same place; each with its own rules, ceremonies, decorations, cults and schedules so as not to interfere with others. To get to the point of the holy sepulcher is to make a line of more than 2 hours, so you must decide if it is what you want or better enjoy only the beauty of the temple and do other activities. You can not miss the visit of this church.
