Jerusalem- Church of the Holy Sepulchre

One of the first places I went after arriving in Jerusalem was to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the site of Golgotha- where Jesus was both crucified and buried.  Here you can enter Jesus' tomb, see a fragment of the stone that sealed his tomb, and touch the stone slab where his body was laid before burial.  The church itself was originally built around 330 A.D. though it was later mostly destroyed and reconstructed in the 1100's. It is the most beautiful place I think I've ever seen, and pretty indescribable so here it is in photographs.
