Hugely crowded and a very long lineup. Not a good idea if you are claustrophobic or are susceptible to heat stroke. Couldn't help feeling that there was a feeling of sideshow about it all.

Could this be the place where Christ was buried? There are lots of things that point in that direction, even if the Garden Tomb feels more authentic. Just the thought, however, that this might be the place is fascinating, to say the least.

The Tomb is Beautiful and I wasn't expecting to view it inside the church. As I was expecting to only see a tomb in the Garden only. However, it is interesting to see from a different perspective and religious view.

this is located inside the church, so it is not a separate facility, so while visiting church of the holy sepulcher you can see it

Within the Church of the Holy Sepulcher and one of the holiest sites on earth! Recently refurbished Edicule is a place for serious prayer and contemplation.

We were on line for 45 minutes and only had seconds to be in front of the tomb but it was worth it. Gave me chills to be in the presence. Lots of pilgrims in the church to see the tomb.

Jesus Christ was crucified outside the walls of ancient Jerusalem since Jewish custom would not have allowed executions or burials inside of the walls. However, due to the work of Saint Helena, mother of the first Christian Emperor Constantine, once she had identified the site...More
