The Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Jerusalem: 78 reviews and 243 photos
The round area of the church is known as the Rotunda or Anastasis. It preserves the location and shape, and a few original columns, of Constantine's IV-th-century Church of the Resurrection built on the site of Christ's tomb.
The Rotunda is surmounted by a large dome, completed in the 1960s. It is decorated with a 12-pointed star whose rays symbolize the outreach of the 12 apostles. The diameter of the dome is about 20 meters; the height is 34 meters.
You will see there the Edicule with the Tomb Christ, the Coptic Chapel where a piece of the tomb of Christ is located and the Syrian Chapel.
