Church of Holy Sepulchre, Jerusalem Overview

This church is built on a site considered by Christians to be the place of crucification and resurrection of Christ.

In the Christian quarter of the city, this church is probably one of the holiest for devout followers of Christianity. Pilgrims from all over the world cross boundaries to offer their prayers. The church was built by the Emperor of Constantine and after being destroyed twice, was restored by the Crusaders. Just near the entrance is the Stone of Unction, the place where Christ's body was prepared before burial, while the tomb itself is inside one of the rooms. The Church walls, though not the best of architecture you will see in Jerusalem, emanates a certain sanctity. It is advisable to dress modestly here - shoulders, back and legs covered.
