Containing the last five Stations of the Cross, this is the holiest Christian site in Jerusalem. Inside the cavernous, ornately decorated and dimly lit church, a small stairway leads to the Chapel of Golgotha where Jesus was believed to be stripped, crucified and removed from the cross. The Sepulchre, at the centre of the church, marks where Jesus is believed to have been buried and resurrected.
