Basilica   6 comments


Just a short walk from the Western Wall is the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, also called the Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre and a few other names, inside is the slab on which Jesus was laid after he was crucified, (placing my hand on it sure made the hair on the back of my neck standup),  also the Sepulchre which is said to be the place Jesus was buried. I took a few shots of the Sepulchre (which is allowed) but they are quite grainy, I might post them at a later date. 

For the observant viewer you may have noticed a small ladder perched by the upper window, I overheard part of a story about that ladder and why it is still there, something about a repair job and no one could make up their mind who should do the work, hence it is still there. A bit like my jobs around the house!. If anyone knows the story please let me know and I’ll post about it later. Thanks.

  1. Nice work!! This is certainly a beautiful Basilica. I was here last year and absolutely loved visiting!

  2. Great shots. There is so much history in this little corner of the world and it’s all so moving.

  3. That ladder caught my eye immediately. Well seen.
