The Church of the Holy Sepulchre or the Temple of Resurrection is one of the major Christian Pilgrimage destinations. This temple houses all different dogmas adhering to the christian religion in a somewhat "bizarre cohabitation". The Church also houses the "Golgotha", which is the site...More

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.
