No need to worry. Within walking distance of this place is ANOTHER "Tomb of Jesus" located in a wall in a garden in what has been said is the Garden of Joseph of Arimathea. It is literally next door to Golgotha, a stone outcropping which looks like a skull, said to be where Jesus was crucified. The place is now an asphalt parking lot where tour buses emit diesel fumes while waiting for their charges. Golgotha is one of several places reputed to be the crucifxion ground.
So, you see, you have several choices as to where all this happened. I've been to them all. The Church mentioned here is a pretty dreary place where several different sects take turns guarding it.

especially the last ones contained in his so called eschatology .
The Christian Unity is more needed today than never before in History if we want to avoid that collapse, Christians of different denominations ought to learn to trust each one the others or chances are that we are going to see repetitions of the Assyrian Christian genocide occurring in other places.

Well I don't want to controvert others beliefs, but the two places mentioned in the replies are definitively never the burial place of Christ.
The Tomb in the Garden can be a good example of a typical burial site of the times of Christ but nothing more, and It is certainly doubtful that belonged to Joseph of Arimathea, for the simple reason that there is strong historical evidence that this figure, a converted Pharisee into the Christian faith, migrated to Western Europe to carry out evangelization and it is likely that he died either in the British Islands or somewhere in the west coast of France or Spain.
St Matthew 16, 2But He replied to them, "When it is evening, you say, 'It will be fair weather, for the sky is red.' 3"And in the morning, 'There will be a storm today, for the sky is red and threatening.' Do you know how to discern the appearance of the sky, but cannot discern the signs of the times?
