ISRA-ii-SSR1-19 Via Dolorosa,
4th Station
If you can't find a street sign, you can find your way through the winding Via Dolorosa by the shops:
here, "The 4th Station T-Shirt Shop."

"Protestant Calvary" (Goltotha)
Some people think that the holes in the rock look like a face and, thus, "the Place of the Skull."
However, those holes were likely made as a result of mining as late as the 1800s.

Note the man stepping over the edge of the track where a flat, round stone would have been rolled over the entrance.

ISRA-ii-SSR1-28 Garden Tomb, inside
Matthew 27:59-60 And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, And laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulchre, and departed.
