It's a restoration project that cost the church almost £3m, but the tomb of Jesus Christ was opened to the public today.
It was a huge nine-month project based in Jerusalem, Israel.
The supposed tomb for Jesus during his time between his crucifixion and resurrection is held within the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
It's the first time visitors will be able to see the ancient burial cave of Jesus.
The entire structure has also been cleaned and restored to a painstaking level. People can now see the beautiful wall markings and colours.

Chief renovator, Antonia Moropoulou, described the transformation: "Before, the monument was black. This is the actual colour of the monument, the colour of hope.
"The deformations of the holy edicule are addressed and the structural integrity is assured.
There are still questions as to whether this the brief resting place of Christ for three days.
