If at all possible, visit this church in the very early morning. It opens at 4am, and the ethereal sound of priests chanting in ancient tongues, the pre-dawn darkness, and the vast emptiness of the church itself lend a contemplative air to the place--even if...More

According to the Christian tradition, this church was built on the site of Jesus crucifixion. He was also buried here and thence is the holiest and most important place to Catholic and Orthodox christians.

This foundation point of Christianity has several important places. Sad to see that parts are being eroded because the various sects can't agree on how to preserve them. Interesting to see no matter what your heritage is.

Christians will want to visit so join the throng of worshippers. Tricky to find in the Old City. It's up a narrow lane. The church is always packed but at least it is accessible unlike the Church of the Navitity.

Unless you are able to perfect your timing, you will get lost in the crowds. Hopefully the administration will find a work around for all tourist to get their turn :(

So much history in every single nook and cranny. Try to go when it opens or near closing because the crowds are a bit overwhelming. Read about it before you go so you have a sense of direction when you enter. It's that amazing!

Being Jewish, I wondered what interest I would have in visiting this holy place for Christians. It was absolutely fascinating and moving to see this level of devotion, certainly nothing like I had been exposed to in other churches around the world. If you go,...More

Having been raised Catholic this was supposed to be a high point of Old Jerusalem. Because this site is "owned" by 6 different groups and making any physical changes is virtually impossible the up keep was marginal. It was sad to see works of art...More

I have seen on some blogs that you can do it in person with the Franciscan/Roman Catholic monks- doors close at 7pm and reopen at 4am. I'm trying to find an online way of doing it. Hope this helps, it looks like a quieter... More
