You will need plenty of time if you actually want to see Christ's Tomb, as so do a lot of other people. Situated on the far west side of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is the rotunda. In the centre of the rotunda is...More

As mentioned in other reviews, it was busy, crowded and way too commercialized. I didn't feel at all spiritual.

I agree with others who realized this is nothing but a crowded touristy place. The church itself is dripping w/gold and gaudy decor to the point of nausea! One could barely move either inside or out in the courtyard areas due to the myriad of...More

Besides the fact this location does not fit the Biblical facts, it is so commercialized it is sad. Gaudy, excessive chandeliers everywhere. If I went back to Israel, I would not revisit this.
