Human heart has three layers in its wall. They are, from inside outwards :

  1. Endocardium
  2. Myocardium
  3. Pericardium

Of these three layers, the endocardium is an endothelial lining. The myocardium is composed of cardiac muscle and the pericardium is the fibro-serous covering of the heart.
