(3.6/5 based on 200 reviews on the web)
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 is a great King to appear in the Bible. Room was taken last supper with his disciples, Jesus Christ, under the floor next to the entrance. King David's tomb was likely originally elsewhere, but so was transferred to its current location. Room has gender has become narrow room for women, is put on the grave had embroidered in gold on a white cloth. Also visit the small room so quickly that is between. But I think because I go in the room of the last supper and the set visit. It is from the Zion gate.

  • The sarcophagus of the King, the Prophet and psalmopevca David is near the old city walls. Premises with the tomb is divided into female and male part while the women heard how local men pray behind a partition. In the same building complex is the place of the last Supper. I think even people far from religion cannot touch the Psalms great King ... Psalms is named after the great and General Treasury of humankind. Psalms napolnenye marvelous beauty of expression and depth of the love of God, inspired many artists and ordinary people on their own arrangement of these ancient beautiful texts. Who have not read-read. And being in Jerusalem, his homage of talantlivejshemu give the Kings.

  • 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...
  • feel very holy
  • 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.
