As you walk into the Church of the Holy Sepluchre you will see on your right hand side a steep staircase. This leads to a floor 4.5m above ground level where is located the place Christ was crucified known as Golgotha.

Matthew 27:32-35

Along the way they found a man from Cyrene, named Simon, and they forced him to carry the cross of Jesus. And when they came to a place called Golgotha, which means The Place of the Skull, they offered Him wine to drink, mixed with gall; but after tasting it, He refused to drink it. When they had crucified Him, they divided up His garments by casting lots.
