The Church of the Holy Sepulchre is located in Jerusalem, between Suq Khan e-Zeit and Christian Quarter Rd. For a better guide, you can consult the map at the bottom of the page.

Opening Hours

  • During the summer (April to September) the Church is open daily from 05:00 AM to 9:00 PM, except on Sundays when it closes at 8 PM.
  • During the winter (October to March) it is open from 04:00 AM to 7:00 PM.


Admission to the site of the Holy Sepulchre is free! Visitors of any religion can enter inside, but they are advised to be dressed modestly.

There is no crowd control at the church entrance so sometimes it is overcrowded and you’ll have to wait in a line for around 1 hour.

To avoid crowds, go visit the church as early as possible. During Easter the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is particulary crowded.
