Site Of Jesus’ Tomb Has Reopened to Public After Meticulous Restoration

Thousands are visiting the burial chamber where many believed Jesus Christ was entombed.

It’s a small limestone and marble structure located in the Christian quarter of Jerusalem’s Old City.

As one of Christianity’s holiest sites, the crowds are huge and expected to be even larger with Easter approaching.

The project was overseen by the World Monuments Fund. Conservators worked mostly at night as to not displace the faithful from praying there during the day.
