Rosabal – The Tomb Of Christ?


 

Here is another unusual site in India, something that is not very well known (or expected) and definitely controversial!

Some say Jesus is buried in Srinagar, Kashmir. The current site/tomb in a place called “Rosabal” and is protected by civilian volunteers who try to hustle you away if you try to click pictures of it. (to avoid needless controversy and trouble) There is nothing ostentatious, and the tomb is very simple but with an interesting feature in a corner on the ground floor. A set of footprints in stone purportedly being those of Jesus.

To add grist to the mill, watch this brilliant (and possibly controversial)  documentary by BBC that seeks to unravel what happened two thousand years ago. I must admit I am keen to see what they uncover, but sadly my non religious demeanor would not go down too well ! 🙂 So I shall stay and watch from afar how this remarkable journey unfolds!
