Church of the first Good Friday

This is the entrance to the church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem which was built by the crusaders to mark the spot where supposedly Jesus was crucified and was buried. This was not the first church building constructed on that spot - the crusaders destroyed the first one in their siege of Jerusalem. Then they built this one.

This is one of the many alters in the church it is in front of the place where they say the tomb was.
