Amazing experience can’t believe at Sunday school you hear this and now I’m here. You can just wonder around for a whole day. Follow the 12 stations.

Was a nice experience to see the people in the church. Wanted to see the elements in the church. It was quite bussy but still ok.

The church was one of the important place for those who believe in Jesus. We can felt it when you stepped into this church. I really like the atmosphere inside this church was so peaceful and calm.

An inspiring and life changing experience. Kneeling and praying at Christ's tomb was very moving. Seeing the Crucifixion site at Golgatha and praying there was a true blessing. Following the footsteps of Christ's final hours meant so much.

A must on a visit to Israel is to see Jerusalem and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. It is like going back to old times, it is very touchy.
