Logistics for a Visit to the Holy Sepulcher

Modest dress is required. Men should doff their hats.

Opening hours: from 04:00 until 15 minutes after sundown. To double-check on the opening hours, call the Christian Information Center, Monday-Friday before 13:00. Phone: (02) 6272692.

On Greek Orthodox holidays in particular, the church may be extremely crowded. To check on holidays, visit the Interfaith Calendar.

There are usable rest rooms in the church.

You can best feel the power of this site if you visit in the early part of the morning, planning to finish by 9 a.m., when the crowds begin to arrive. Toward evening the church can be extremely crowded.
