    The Aedicule is located in a small rotunda in the Central Part of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and is considered the most important part of the Church as this is th biblical site where Jesus was buried and rose after 3 days. The aedicule consists of two chambers, the Bigger Chapel of the Angel and the very small chamber with a granite stone adorned with incense and flowers and religious items, which is the spot of the Burial Site of Jesus. The line going to the Aedicule might take 1 to 2 hours depending if there is a religous holiday and pilgrims are only allowed 10 seconds or less to go inside and pray (and take picture and videos).
