The architecture is beautiful and there are more things to see than just the tomb itself. The history of the Byzantine period along with the Roman period is on display in the style and decor of this church.

Being in this church had so much meaning of religion. This is where they show you where Jesus was crucified and there were lines so you could touch the spot. The tomb of Jesus also had lines so you could see where Jesus was buried. But was very disappointed when our tour guide wouldn't let us stay in the lines because we didn't have anytime. She said you would have to come back on you own, which we never had too much free time. The mosaic murals were pretty. Maybe if you went on a pilgrimage instead of a tour you might get more out of this beautiful church.

Any Christian should visit the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. It contains Christianity's two holiest shrines -- Golgotha, where Jesus was crucified, and his tomb, from which he rose from the dead after three days. These sites, in ancient times were outside the walls of Jerusalem. Many Christian denominations a have some sort of rights except Protestants (including Anglicans) who have none. It's well worth visiting, even for those or marginal faith.
