Church of the Holy Sepulchre
The Church of the Holy Sepulchre. A Christian church within the walled Old City of Jerusalem. The site is venerated by many Christians as Golgotha (the Hill of Calvary), where the New Testament says that Jesus was crucified, and is said to also contain the place where Jesus was buried (the sepulchre). The church has been an important Christian pilgrimage destination since at least the 4th century.
