So much pilgrims! The queue inside was gigantic. If you can find a way to bypass the queue, do it firmly! Nice garden in the backyard!

If you are a small group, 5 or less people go to the left side of the greek alter and ask the Palestinian police officer to let you in from the EXIT. Sometimes it works. Enjoy

Come early to be at the head of the line to go down to the grotto (in the Greek Orthodox part). Manger on the left, and the spot Jesus was born on the right (marked with a 14-point silver star).

This is the oldest church standing in Israel. They are still excavating many areas in the church as there are remains of old buildings during the bezantine and crusaders era

Христианская церковь в Вифлееме, построенная, согласно преданию, над местом рождения Иисуса Христа. Наряду с храмом Гроба Господня является одним из двух главных христианских храмов  Святой земли.
