I had visited the place that is called the grave of Jesus in Srinagar, Kashmir in June of 2007. And, actually, unless you know the history and controversy about this little building, there is not much that will give any indications of this being the grave of Jesus. But it is good that I went when I did, because now it is locked and off-limits to foreigners, especially westerners.

This place is also called the Roza bal, or Rauza bol, which means “tomb of the prophet.” This is the burial place of Yuz Asaph (or Asaf), in the center of Srinagar’s old part of town. The name  Yuz Asaph is said to relate to Jesus. Some people believe it is the grave of Jesus and others think it is all based on faulty premises, meaning it is merely a rumor or urban legend. However, there is a complete line of logic behind this, so I will only give you the evidence and what people say and you can decide for yourself. That way, if you are ever in Srinagar, you can have some understanding of the significance of this place and check it out yourself.

Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection are central elements of the doctrine of Christianity.  The Koran, however, contains a verse that not only leads to different interpretations, but could convince us that Jesus was not killed.  He is believed to have passed away in India, buried in the town of Srinagar.  Clues hidden within the bible have prompted careful readers to believe that Jesus did survive his crucifixion.

In addition to hidden suggestions that the burial was not done properly in accordance to Jewish traditions, the Gospel of John also refers to two items, aloe and myrrh, which were taken to the tomb.  In Judaism, aloe and myrrh, were never used to embalm bodies but were applied to one’s body to heal its wounds.
