Golgotha is the name of the site where Jesus Christ was crucified. Its name, which means "skull" in Hebrew, is either derived from its form or from the skulls of executed persons that were found there. According to some the place was situated near the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, within the walls of present Jerusalem, while others hold that it is outside the Damascus Gate, north of the city.
