Light a candle
Our volunteers, Jerusalem Christians, will place the candle in the Temple of the Holy Sepulchre on a particular date and time, according to your instructions. They will send you a photo of the lighted candle with details on the time and specific location where it was placed.

Locations for placing candles in the Temple of the Holy Sepulchre
We have created an exceptional virtual tour of the sanctuary so that you can visit the Temple of the Holy Sepulchre from the inside and choose where you want your candle placed. Thanks to this unique method of displaying the images on your screen you will feel like you really are in the Holy Land. Even though you are thousands of kilometers from Israel, you can’t help but feel the “presence” and reverence
On the home screen for the virtual visit to Golgotha you can see a chest (to the left of the altarpiece) for the donations and another chest with the candles where they can be taken and lit to fulfil your order. This part of the virtual visit allows you to see the location in greater detail.
