Holy Sepulchre

I found this interesting cross section of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre with a depiction of what was there during the time of Christ and how the Church was constructed (early 4th Century) to incorporate both the tomb and Golgatha. 

It was interesting to see that an intact tomb (called the tomb of Joseph of Arimathea) is still present at the rear of the Church.  This tomb was all hewn out of the rock with both an outer and inner chambers.
