I found this quite a strange place to visit. First of all, there seems to be much dispute about whether it is actually the tomb of King David or not, and then once you get inside (men and women separated) and wait for your turn...More

To see and to witness you were there at Mount Zion. Crowds. Small space. Not to much to see but his casket where inside is his bones.

Tradition has it that it is King David who is buried in The Tomb of King David but this is not a certainty. Anyway, no matter who is buried in the tomb it is nice to believe it is King David and it is worth...More

Fun to see for the history of it, but it's really just a quick look in and see what it's like kind of deal. It's right by the Upper Room/Cenacle and the Dormition Abbey if you want to stop and see all of those things...More

We entered the room after 17:00 and could easily get in and out. Not very much to see, but understand the significance to Jewish people. The only downside of arriving this late is that the Last Supper room was closed, as were the cathedral nearby.

This is on mount Sion! Where David First Came! He may not be buried here, but on the top, is the place where the last supper took place and Pentecoste. And on the same location a Church in rememberance of Virgin Mary. The whole Area...More

In addition to almost certainly not being the burial place of King David, the space is gender-segregated in a way that manages to obstruct the view of the “tomb” for both males and females. Most of the other visitors when I was there were Haredi...More

I don't remember being here at this "traditional" burial place of King David since 1978, although Mrs. Haish claims that we were here in 1981. Anyway, it's a rather nondescript place- a conglameration of small stone rooms- crowded and not easy to navigate, and narrow...More

There are many things to see in the area, and this seemed to be the most difficult to access. There is no signage to indicate what you're seeing, and people must enter through the same narrow doorway that others are exiting from, so it's crowded...More

It was a squeeze to get in and out as there's only one entrance. Men and women are separated (not sure why). Not really much to see. There were signs not to take pictures but some did anyway.
