Before you visit this fine Church research how much restoration work is being done. This was a very crowded attraction and with the amount of works being done to the inside of the building it was actually quite difficult to see any thing of note....More

It seems to me that the religiosity of this place is exactly what Jesus spoke out against. One gets a very distinct feeling of a holier-than-thou attitude from the various priests ministering in this place. People praying over, crying and kissing a stone purportedly the...More

Much of the confusing, complex tapestry of Christianity in the Holy land will be viewed up close in this amazing site. I recommend some variation of the Abraham Tours but there are many worthy ways to tour it.

This a must do for anyone who is in any way religious. It is a truly spiritual experience and it is humbling to see the devotion shown by some of the pilgrims who visit the church.

Despite being a Christian, I didn't find this church especially moving - it is so full of the works and disputes of man that there isn't much space for reflection. However, it's a fascinating historical building and a must visit if you're in Jerusalem. Get...More

Hot, tight, noisy setting with lots of tourists. Glad I saw it, don't need to do it again. Read up on it beforehand. The battles between the different denominations is interesting.

Nothing similar to what we have in Europe except the walls. decoration inside is totally different. And what surprise me the most is the Three level of church that has been rebuild the one over the other

Truly amazing and very moving even though it was quite crowded. A wonderful experience to visit this holy place. The highlight of our visit to Jerusalem.

Just wow! I really recommend. Blend of cultures, religions. make sure to visit the cave inside. One disturbing thing: public toilets are horrible.

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.

Has anyone been here for Catholic Easter? If so, how early would you suggest arriving at the church for the service? Thank you.

I would have the reasonable caution you would have in any city, but I didn't feel especially vulnerable in the old city either. Lots of people, lots of soldiers and police around. The Sepulchre is pretty popular itself, so... More
