Each Easter Saturday (before Orthodox Easter Sunday) in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, built on the spot where Jesus is believed to be crucified, buried and where he ascended to the sky, the miracle of light happens. The ceremony starts at about 11 in the morning, with a series of prayers leading to a miraculous fire appearance. The fire is believed to be holy and is then passed by people all over Earth. The event draws in huge amounts of believers and is considered to be the holiest experience. Plan your trip for this time and see the miracle with your own eyes!
