The Station 9 is located just before the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, where it is supposed to be the tomb of Jesus. Jesus no longer stands up: his strength is lacking, the weight of the cross and his massive size exhausts him, he collapses, He lies on the ground, exhausted. The third and the last fall of his in the Way of the Cross. This place of pilgrimage situated in the Old City of Jerusalem was filmed by the team of 360HolyPlaces™ for you in Virtual Reality 360°.
On the right, we have a green door, with at the entrance of this station a cross painted on a column of the Roman era which is itself encrusted on the wall.
This Station 9 is located close to a Coptic monastery where there are rooms and an impressive reservoir of water used formerly to supply the Holy Sepulchre with water.
It bears the name of Helene, who was the mother of the Emperor Constantine. Towards the 4th century she went to Jerusalem for an identification of these holy places.
On the roof of the Church of the Saint Sepulchre, which is occupied by the Ethiopians, the Deir el-Sultan, which served as a dining-room where the knights were found during the period of the Crusades, can be seen nearby, and some vestiges may Confirm the period, including a column on the roof.
