We went here on a bus tour to Jerusalem on Easter Monday. The city was packed and so was the church. There were visitors from many nations there. It's an inspirational and beautiful site that was first begun in the 4th century. The church was packed, but it's a once in a lifetime experience.

Far too many people. It was hot and stuffy while you got pushed and shoved by the pilgrims. I am going back to Israel but will give this a miss.

Very busy when we visited, but still there was a sense of peace about the place. Fascinating to watch people getting very excited about the various iconic symbols including the replica of a... More

It was busy and there's a lot of walking to get there but again it's all worth it. Shorts & mini's... More

So as a Christian this was really great. I am sure it can get quite crowded but we were there in early March and it wasn't too bad.

This is a place for all to go see, no matter what religion you may or may not be. A guide is highly recommended as there is so much history.There are quite a few different religious groups that occupy different areas. You will never understand everything on your own. There are areas where different groups are coming and going and... More
