Pinsteps. Courtyard in front of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, Jerusalem

The square in front of us is part of the complex of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. Crusaders rebuilt the church in the 13th century, and it has survived almost unchanged till today. To the right of the entrance stands a solitary chapel covered with fragments of marble slabs. The chapel is the place where roman soldiers stripped Jesus of his garments before his crucifixion. The entrance gate to the church is below two pointed arches on the left, which close with wooden doors. On the second floor above the arches is a wooden ladder - a symbol of the status quo, preserved by the six Christian denominations leading the prayers in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. To the left of the wooden doors is the bell tower. It was higher during the Crusaders. Fire destroyed Its third floor. Then, in the 19th century, Samgin's factories from Moscow presented new bells.
