(200+ reviews on the web)
Cemetery Tourist Spot
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.

  • Hast great lookout of the surrounding area, a small park just outside the southern exit, and offers a fantastic blend of Muslim, Christian, and Jewish culture and history

  • First stop on our tour of the old city. It's nice, but not much to see here.
  • Great vibes. Come Motzei Shabbos (Saturday night) and dance with the all the Na Nach's.
  • Christian tradition since Acts 2:29. Now held by hassidim Jews who would not like other prayers on the upper floor...
