"A must-visit holy site. The Church of the Holy Sepulchre is located in the Christian area of the Old City of Jerusalem. It is the place where Jesus died, was buried and resurrected, and the most important holy place in Christianity. The Holy Tomb is a stone cave, less than 2 meters wide. When Jesus was alive, he said that he would be resurrected on the third day after his death. At the beginning of the 4th century, the Empress Dowager Hirana, the mother of Constantine the Great, cruised to Jerusalem and ordered the construction of the Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre at the site of Jesus’ death and burial. It is located on three holy sites: a rectangular colonnaded hall church (Matyrium) surrounding RockofCalvary's Triportico, a rotunda (Anastasis, meaning "resurrection"). In the center of the rotunda is the site of the cave where Jesus was buried. The rocks around the cave were all cut away, and the holy tomb was enclosed in a building called Edicule (meaning "little house"). Enter the church, turn right and go upstairs. It is Golgotha Hill where Jesus was nailed to the cross. There are two frescoes that show that Jesus was stripped of his clothes and then nailed to the cross. An altar, with a model of Jesus nailed to the cross at the top, and a statue of Jesus at the bottom, like a round marble hole in the front, which is said to be the hole where the cross was erected. Countless believers and tourists lined up to touch this hole. At the entrance of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, a piece of red marble is placed in the middle. It says that Jesus was nailed to the cross at 9 o'clock in the morning on Friday. At 3 o'clock in the afternoon, Jesus died after shouting loudly to God. At this time, the people believed that Jesus was really the Son of the Lord and the Messiah who came to save them. So people took him off the cross, put him on this marble, smeared anointing oil, and prepared for burial. The mural on the wall behind the marble bed depicts the scene in detail. There are many devout believers who put the tokens on the stone bed and wipe them. More people knelt for a long time and kissed this stone, which is said to be soaked in the blood of Jesus. To the left is the last stop of the sad road-the tomb of Jesus. Jesus was buried here and resurrected three days later. There is also the marble from the original tomb."
