Inside the tomb: site of the Resurrection

 

The burial site: After Christ was taken down from the cross, Joseph of Arimathea buried him in a tomb that he had donated. When the church was built on that spot 300 years later, the hill around the tomb was removed, so only a small structure remains, on a flat surface. A rotunda was built around the tomb's structure, with a large dome.
