Jesus' burial shrine reopens following nine-month restoration work

Visitors stand near the newly restored Edicule, the ancient structure housing the tomb, which according to Christian belief is where Jesus's body was anointed and buried, seen at the completion of months of restoration works, at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem's Old City March 20, 2017.

The purported site of Jesus' tomb is slated to be reopened to the public this week after a team of restorers and scientist completed the renovation of the Edicule, a shrine that is believed to house the cave where Jesus was entombed and resurrected.
