The Sepulcher

The Sepulcher in Jerusalem

The most holy place in the Christian Quarter (maybe in all the world for Christians) lies right within the structure featured in this photo.  On a typical day you must wait in line for groups of 2-3 people at a time to cross into the chamber within this chamber to view the stone where Jesus was laid to rest.  I entered in with two nice catholic ladies through the door way only about 4-5' tall where we could kneel in silence for only a about 10 seconds before the minders ushered us out and the next group in.  For obvious reasons no photos are allowed inside so you really do have to experience it yourself.

The surrounding area was extremely busy and it took quite a bit of patience to time out groups coming and going to get as few tourists in the shot as possible.,,had to do a lot of masking on this one all around.
