King David's Tomb, Jerusalem

(2.6/5 based on 190+ 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.
