Church Holy Sepulchre

Indian tourists at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, a church in the Church in the Christian Quarter of the Old City. According to traditions dating back to the 4th century, it contains the two holiest sites in Christianity.

Sisters praying in the site where Jesus was crucified at a place known as Calvary and Jesus’s empty tomb, which is where He was buried and resurrected.   

Each time the church was rebuilt, some of the previous structure’s antiquities were used in the newer renovation. The tomb itself is enclosed by a 19th-century shrine called the Aedicule.

One of the holiest places, indeed!  I didn’t ask what religion they were, nor did they inquire about mine. Why?
