Dome of the Holy Sepulchre

Dome that illuminates the place of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, representing a gateway to the Holy Spirit and the reflection of it to the people on earth. At the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, Israel.

The site is venerated by many Christians as Golgotha, (the Hill of Calvary), where the New Testament says that Jesus was crucified, and is said to also contain the place where Jesus was buried (the sepulchre). The church has been an important pilgrimage destination since at least the 4th century, as the purported site of the death and resurrection of Jesus. Today it also serves as the headquarters of the Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Jerusalem, while control of the building is shared between several Christian churches and secular entities in complicated arrangements essentially unchanged for centuries.
