King David's Tomb, Jerusalem

3.7
Visit the site of King David's Tomb, traditionally seen as the final resting place of the King of Israel. Nestled in a ground-floor room of an ancient, delapidated Byzantine church, it is not known whether the site is the real burial place of King David, or a cenotaph. Nevertheless, the church and sarcophagus, covered with a blue velvet cloth, are still revered by Jewish worshippers from all around the world, who come here to pay their respects to the legendary king. King David's Tomb is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Jerusalem Edition.

    The enclosure where is the tomb of King David is a place where Jews gather to pray. The women gather in a room and the men in another. When there are many people inside a person who cares about with very bad ways asks tourists to not enter. When we were there there were people singing and praying. The place is very small and is in the same building as the Cenacle. There is nothing special to see. I only got one minute and left. They're not taking pictures inside.

    The resting place of the king David isn't sure to be here. Anyway, it is an important historic place for all mayor religions. King David literally changed the history of this country.
