Church of the Holy Sepulchre
The Church of the Holy Sepulcher is one of the world’s holiest Christian shrines that preserve the moments of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is in Jerusalem’s Christian Quarter and was built during the fourth century over the site of a Roman Pagan temple.
The church opens daily half past five in the morning and is an active church as well as a tourist attraction. Priests and other church dwellers occupy the area all day which created a remarkable ambiance to the already important church. This church is built on the spot what is believed to be where Jesus died on the cross.
The interior is filled with ornaments that display the painful death that Jesus died on the cross. Many Christian pilgrims spend as much time as they possibly can in the overly crowded interior of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. People of the Catholic faith often kiss the feet of the statues of Jesus and they lay their own rosaries at various parts of the church.
The Church of the Holy Sepulcher is one of the Stations of the Cross which contributes to it being as crowded. No entrance fees are charged for this site, but the queues are very long and staff on the inside doesn’t allow people to spend a lot of time inside. One can take photos and also pray a little before being asked to leave.
The best times to visit the Church of the Holy Sepulcher would be opening time at half past five in the morning and around eight o’clock at night just before closing time at half past eight in the evening.
