Holy Christian church in the Christian Quarter
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed 1 day ago

Both a beautiful church in the interior and one with the reputed site of Jesus’ crucifixion and his empty tomb. Lots to see here, but depending on when you go, it can be very crowded. It’s part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Old City of Jerusalem.

A fascinating place. I can only imagine how this site looked almost 2,000 years go, before the churches and buildings were constructed to commemorate the greatest event in history, the crucifixion and resurrection of the Son of God, the Lord Jesus Christ.

A fascinating place. I can only imagine how this site looked almost 2,000 years go, before the churches and buildings were constructed to commemorate the greatest event in history, the crucifixion and resurrection of the Son of God, the Lord Jesus Christ. A person so great, that even the world's calendar was restarted following the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem. While the busy inside atmosphere of the church is mainly serine and respectful, the immediate surroundings outside the church are quite the opposite with noisy loudspeakers nearby (promoting Islam) as there is a large mosque located right next door to the church. The area outside the church around and along the Via Dolorosa, is a melting pot of Christians, Muslims, Jews (and tourists) who have, by necessity, learned to coexist together. Tip: The queue to enter the tomb section can be a wait of up to 1 or 2 hours, so on our tour group visit day, we didn't even try to line up. We made a second, personal visit on the next day and we only waited in queue for some 10 minutes. Why?..... because it was lunch time! So, I'd say line up at lunch & dinner time to avoid the main tour group crowds!
