The Church of the Holy Sepulchre (Latin: Ecclesia Sancti Sepulchri; also called the Church of the Resurrection or Church of the Anastasis by Orthodox Christians (Arabic: كنيسة القيامة, Kaneesat al-Qeyaamah; Armenian: Սուրբ Յարութեան տաճար, Surb Harut’ian Tachar; Greek: Ναός της Αναστάσεως, Naos tes Anastaseos), is a church within the Christian Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem. It is a few steps away from the Muristan.
The church contains, according to traditions dating back at least to the fourth century, the two holiest sites in Christendom: the site where Jesus of Nazareth was crucified, known as "Calvary" (Calvāria) in Latin and "Golgotha" (Γολγοθᾶ, "Golgothâ") in Greek, and Jesus's empty tomb, where he is said to have been buried and resurrected. Within the church proper are the last four (or, by some definitions, five) Stations of the Via Dolorosa, representing the final episodes of Jesus' Passion. The church has been a major Christian pilgrimage destination since its creation...Wikipedia (
