Old, beautiful church built on the spot where they say Jesus was crucified. Stop to take a look at the inside of the church and learn about its amazing history.

The Holy Sepulchre is a must place to visit for every christian. I've been there over 50 times for the last 20 years and each time when I step in, I feel the mystery and special atmosphere of this unique church.

Go as early as you can to beat the lines.... Every single Christian must visit at least once. Touch the anointing stone and the stone where Jesus's Crucifix stood. View Christians of all nations praying in their own way.... Beautiful.

It's a huge church where there are a lot to see. I only read a bit about it before I entered, so I couldn't really understand what all the places are meant for inside the church, plus there are not signs in there saying anything...More

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre is currently a mess. Neglected for centuries due to sectarian bickering, the church is now a construction zone for intensive restorations. Many portions are closed off, and the rest is difficult to navigate and understand. Crowds are nightmarish during...More

I'm not one for ornate intricacies in worship, but I found this interesting as a historical place, and to see all the groups from all over the world here.

I don't think you can stay in the church itself. There is plenty of accommodation around there although I suggest staying outside the old city.
