Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Edicule
The Church of the Holy Sepulchre (Sanctum Sepulchrum), also called the Church of the Resurrection, by Eastern Christians, is a Christian church within the walled Old City of Jerusalem. The site is venerated by most 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 church has been an important pilgrimage destination since at least the 4th century, as the purported site of the Death and Resurrection of Jesus. Today it also serves as the headquarters of the Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Jerusalem.
