An ancient church located in the Old City of Jerusalem. First built around the year 335, it was burned by Persians in 614, restored 10 years later, destroyed again by the local caliph in the 11th century, restored again by crusaders in the 12th century, and generally remodelled since that time until 1810. It was undergoing some additional retrofitting when I saw it in 1998. People care about this church because it is supposedly located on the spot where Jesus was buried and resurrected, although this is under debate.

Services are performed here by the Greek, Roman, Armenian, and Coptic churches, who control various parts. Visitors here can get away with a lot of stuff not usually tolerated, such as flash photography.

Thanks to for the information that was not personal experience
