Photos of Chapel of the Shepherd’s Field – Bethlehem

I’ve been to so many churches and chapels during my Middle East trip and it’s easy to forget which is which, especially for  non religious person like me.

I remember the significance of this Chapel in Bethlehem, Palestine because it’s where the angles first announced the birth of Christ according to Catholic tradition. I just couldn’t remember it’s name.

After checking my note, it’s all coming back. The name is Chapel of the Shepherd’s Field, located southeast of Bethlehem in the West Bank in Palestine.

Without a tour, I’d never dare to go to Palestine by myself. I’m glad finally made it to Middle East and learned so many historical stories and culture background in this region.

Here are some photos of this beautiful chapel and its surroundings:

This is the cave under the church. An image depicting the birth of Jesus can be seen in the place.
