The Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem is the site of that is identified as the place both of the crucifixion and the tomb of Jesus of Nazareth. 

The site is venerated as Golgotha and also known as the Hill of Calvary or "the place of the skull" (Matt. 27:33–35; Mark 15:22–25; John 19:17–24).  where Jesus was crucified, and is said to also contain the place where Jesus was buried (the sepulchre). The church has been an important Christian pilgrimage destination since at least the 4th century, as the purported site of the resurrection of Jesus. 

This has been identified more than once as an area of abandoned stone quarries just outside the city wall of the time.

About 10 years after the crucifixion, a third wall was built that enclosed the area of the execution and burial within the city, and this accounts for the Holy Sepulchre's location inside the Old City of Jerusalem today.

The lights burn as a sign of solidarity with Christians still on earth. Because the lights continually burned as a silent vigil, they became known as vigil lightsThe practice of lighting candles in order to obtain some favor probably has its origins in the custom of burning lights at the tombs of the martyrs in the catacombs.
