King David's tomb is available for viewing. Men and women have separate viewing rooms with the tomb separated in half.

While in Jerusalem---do it all, including a stop here. Adjacent to the room of the Last Supper and worth a quick stop to this traditional site.

King David's Tomb is an interesting visit in Mount Zion!. Pay attention as men and woman use different doors to visit the Tomb. It's crowded but can be visited in 15 or 20 mins!.
