Enter through the original wooden doors from the Basilica's reconstruction under the Crusader Era of 1100 AD, into the dimly-lit sacred grounds of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, one of the most venerated and holy sites in Christianity. Helena, mother of the Emperor Constantine, located this ancient site in 326 AD during her Christian pilgrimage to The Holy Land, where a relic of the cross of Jesus had been discovered. The original Christian Church was constructed at that time, but throughout history there have been many challenges to the structure and numerous changes and expansions. Considered the location of the crucifixion, entombment and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the numerous Christians who assemble here keep their voices respectfully low in reverence. "Golgotha" or "Calvary", where Jesus was crucified, is accessed up stairs to a higher platform. Be prepared to quickly place your hand into a hole to feel the stone where the Cross of Jesus Christ was mounted; you will have only a moment in this rapidly moving, yet long line. Descend the stairs on the opposite side and first get a glimpse of the exposed rock of Calvary from below, protected by glass. Then view the stone where the body of Jesus was laid to be prepared for burial as you proceed to the "Aedicula" line. Lines for the recently renovated "Aedicula" which protects the tomb where the body of Jesus was temporarily laid, are exceptionally long. Upon my first visit with a tour group, the lines were so expansive that the guide would not let us wait. Recently I toured with my adult son on his first Christian Pilgrimage. We arrived late afternoon during a rain storm and found the lines to be equally challenging. During our long wait to visit the Tomb site, the massive wooden entry doors and areas within the Basilica were closed to the public, but those already inside were allowed to remain in place. The lights came up, giving life to the interior, and a processional mass was conducted by Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox and Armenian Priests. Such a deeply moving experience to hear their chanting echo from throughout the various areas of the large Basilica. Again, you will have just several brief seconds to enter the "Aedicula", where a marble stone was placed over the tomb in the 14th century, to prevent further destruction from human touch. NOTE: While we were unaware at the time and missed the opportunity, behind the entrance to the "Aedicula" is a small chapel, which is said to contain the "Angel Stone", a fragment of the stone that sealed the tomb of Jesus Christ. We did not see anyone enter to touch the Angel Stone, so this must be a little known secret. Also, we had time to explore the many chapels within the Basilica, which a tour may not show you. Several Stations of the Cross are contained within these spaces. Attempt to view the Basilica on your own before or after the masses of people arrive/depart. Enjoy your deeply spiritual experience!

This is the core of it all. The place where the crucification and resurrection too place. It is also an exceedingly crowded place but a definite must see even if you are a non believer.

We visited on a pilgrimage, and this is a very rewarding spiritual site, but my focus in this review is on photography. First, the basics: it is crowded and there will be lines controlling access to the sacred locations, so be flexible and travel with minimal gear. Second, on this visit my gear was a pocket camera with flash off, high ISO and white balance adjusted for lighting. Many people were using I-Phones with good results. Look around since this is a complex building with small chapels inside. Remember to take wide-angles that show context and then zoom in for closeups. Expect post-processing at home afterwards.

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre is one of the most Holy and Sacred places in Jerusalem, or actually in all of Christendom! The Church of the Holy Sepulchre may be the most sacred places for anyone to visit in Jerusalem; although at times the lines of Pilgrims and crowds of reverent worshippers may be somewhat distracting, one cannot be in awe of what occurred there and what Our Lord suffered there. The Church of the Holy Sepulchre may be the single most important reason to visit the Holy Land and a visit there is certain to leave anyone with a hushed and powerful feeling for the sanctity of the place. I have been blessed to have been able to visit the Church of the Holy Sepulchre on two occasions: each tome I was filled with inspiration and the feeling of awe for the sanctity of the Church. I hope I will be able to visit again, sometime, but feel that my life was changed by even my first two visits!
