King David's Tomb, Jerusalem
(2.6/5 based on 170+ 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. Use our Jerusalem trip generator to arrange your visit to King David's Tomb and other attractions in Jerusalem.

  • Although there are them is worth seeing the synagogue, reciting continuously. It seems that there is some confusion of location and from there comes the mess of the adjacent churches. Doctors have the Church, already us it will be clarifying

  • קבר דוד המלך בהר הזיתים הוא עם מסורת של כ1000 שנים. המקום היה יעד לעולי רגל ועדיין זוכה לפופולריות. במקום יש שירותים שמתאימים לקבוצה גדולה. 
  • Part of the history. Give this place 5- 10 minutes on your trip in the area.We were not disappointed.
