Franciscan Monastery

Holy Land of America

Washington, D.C.


The Church and Monastery of Mt. Sepulcher is a religious center for the pilgrims and tourists of all faiths. It is built along the architectural lines of Hagia Sophia in Istanbul. The church and grounds contain replicas of the principal Shrines and Chapels found in the Holy Land; the main Shrine being a replica of the Holy Sepulcher of Our Lord Jesus Christ. The crypt of the church contains replicas of the Catacombs of Rome and has fine copies of early Christian art and inscriptions. The Monastery itself, in simple architectural lines is reminiscent of the monasteries of old Europe.

This is a very beautiful and large place of worship. Plan two or three days here to fully appreciate it's buildings and grounds.
