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.

A lot of people think that this was where Jesus was crucified, buried and resurrected. So for them it is a very emotional experience. However, many researchers believe that this is probably not the place where that happened. Even if it was, it is so covered with ornate marble, candles and lamps, and so crowded, that one quickly loses any sense of the holy. I would go just to see what a lot of religious people do with a holy place. It is unique and certainly part of the history of Jerusalem. The ladder on the outside ledge, that has been left there for 100 years due to a religious dispute, speaks volumes. This site contrasts wonderfully with the Garden Tomb. Recommended to see both.

Expect long queues
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed 1 day ago

Personally i found this church to be overrated. The queues to get in were long and with no shade it was unbearable.
