View looking south at the northern wall of the monument that encases the Tomb of Jesus. The entrance to the tomb is from the left side of the image—behind the three large candelabra. Note the iron casing that prevents the structure from collapsing and the Greek inscriptions on the façade of the monument.
Please note that this current form of the tomb only dates to A.D. 1810—although modern research indicates that portions of the northern and southern wall of the actual tomb may still exist within this casing!
