Take a first look inside Jesus’ tomb – a location where Christian’s believe Christ’s body was laid to rest for three days after crucifixion. The newly restored site at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem was presented to the public on Monday after several months of restoration works.

The last restoration work at the site took place more than 200 years ago after a fire, media reports said. It added that disagreements between the Greek Orthodox, Roman Catholic and Armenian churches who share responsibility for the site have delayed conservation works until last year, when the church was labelled as unsafe by Israeli authorities.

The tomb has been sealed in marble since at least 1555 – and possibly centuries longer – to protect it from pilgrims who kept stealing pieces as holy relics. In addition, King Abdullah of Jordan has made a personal donation, media reports said. Each denomination has contributed funds for the $3.3m to the project.
