The Holy Sepulchre
March 22, 2008
The Church of the Holy Sepulchre is now within the walled Old City of Jerusalem. The ground on which the church rests is venerated by most Christians as Golgotha, the Hill of Calvary, where the New Testament describes that Jesus was crucified. It also the place where Jesus was buried (the sepulchre). The church has been an important pilgrimage destination since the 4th century.
