This slab has been covered in marble since 1855 and has become a place of worship of the Christians.
All the churches are jointly carrying out the maintenance of different sections of the tomb.
This Edicule is present in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem's Old City.
It was reconstructed in 1810 after being damaged in fire.
Currently, a team of scientists from the National Technical University of Athens is working on the restoration of the Edicule and the tomb of Jesus.
Scientists are removing centuries-old layers of wax and carbon dioxide using liquid soap and water.
As the church is a holy site for many Christians, restoration is put on hold for 2 centuries.
They found another marble slab with cross engraved on its surface.
He explained, "We can't say 100% but it appears to be visible proof that the location of the tomb has not shifted through time, something that scientists and historians have wondered for decades."
Researchers were allotted time period of 60 hours to study the edicule and the holy tomb of Jesus. The burial site is resealed again and might not open for centuries.
