Checking in at the UK's most mysterious church, which became famous because of a book, attracting numerous visitors

A single book, 'The Da Vinci Code', has shrouded the church in the small town of Roslin, just south of Edinburgh, in mystery and made this ancient church world-famous, also turning it into a favorite spot for book lovers to check in. This time coming to Scotland, I made a special trip to visit the church. Compared to those ancient churches in Europe, this church is not very large, and its ochre stone walls are covered with the mottled traces of time. The interior decoration of the church is not luxurious, but it is very exquisite, with a dazzling array of stone carvings that are of great artistic value. Unfortunately, photography is not allowed inside the church, so I can only show you the outside of the church. Since its construction in the 15th century, the church has always been obscure until the publication of 'The Da Vinci Code'. The book claims that the mummy of Jesus is hidden in this church and that the Holy Grail was once escorted here by the Knights Templar. As a result, the church and the entire town have become the hottest tourist destinations in Edinburgh. In fact, the builders of the church were not the Knights Templar mentioned in the book, and the crypt of the church does not contain any secret underground chambers, and the Rose Line mentioned in the book is not Roslin. Of course, whether it's true or not doesn't seem to matter that much anymore.
