Church of the Holy Sepulchre

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre is a church in the Christian Quarter in the Old City of Jerusalem. It contains the two holiest sites in Christianity, the site where Jesus was crucified known as Calvary and the site of his Empty Tomb where he was buried and resurrection took place.

Just inside the church entrance is a stairway leading up to Calvary, traditionally regarded as the site of Jesus’ crucifixion and the most lavishly decorated part of the church. Bryan and I waited in a long line of visitors to move into the area and place our hand on the rock marking the location where the crucifixion took place.

The church also has the last five stops for the path of the cross leading to the crucifixion of Jesus.
