The Church of the Holy Sepulchre, also called the Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre, or the Church of the Resurrection by Eastern Christians, is a church within the Christian Quarter of the walled Old City of Jerusalem. It is a few steps away from the Muristan. The site is venerated as Golgotha (the Hill of Calvary), where Jesus was crucified, and is said also to contain the place where Jesus was buried (the Sepulchre). A trend among visitors to the spot (standing outside the Church) is to applaud loudly during the ringing of bells. This is to recognize the unique beauty of the Church and its unique history.

I wished our tour guide gave us more time in this church. She didn't want to stay in line for the tomb or where Jesus was crucified.

Recent scientific investigations support the traditional belief that Christ was buried in the tomb in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, in Jerusalem's Old City. It is a moving experience to see where the Son of Man was dead, buried and resurrected after three days....More

So many types of Christians, all coming to visit the tomb of Jesus. Even those who don't share that faith can experience the emotion of others while visiting here. If visiting with others, it might be a good idea to agree on a meeting place...More

New arceological discoveries say that this is the actual place of Christ's burial. After the 7 AM Mass, those who wish to visit the tomb, must line up at the edicule, where the tomb is housed. I visited it daily when in Jerusalem.

these sites are part of a tour, and I suppose worth seeing. I don't like crowds, but it's interesting to see how people re-shape history and myth to suit their beliefs.
