All reviews last supper mount zion men and women burial place quick look worth a quick stop jewish synagogue holy site heads covered great man religious reasons worth a visit separate areas religious history old city coffin sion
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
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
