Not necessarily the actual burial place and there was not much to see. Men and Women are separated and it is a bit of a tight fit if there are a lot of people.

To visit the tomb of the famous King David is a must when you visit Jerusalem. Remarkable, this is not just a museum, you will see people praying and studying Jewish books while you watch the tomb.

Spiritually an amazing place especially when you understand whose tomb it is. Pity the patrons / custodians are so hostile. Had to beg just to be able to visit, should be easy to visit giving that the tomb dweller would've loved all to have access.

You will find many Jews praying here- please be quiet and respectful, maybe don't bring young children. This site is adjacent to the "Upper Room" observed site of Jesus and his disciples Passover meal AKA the "Last Supper".

I was underwhelmed at this site. The Tome area is very small, and not at all what one would think of as a tomb. There is also little evidence to prove that this is actually where King David is/was buried. There was just a bad "vibe" in this place. Took all of about 3 minutes to see.

Not much to see but of course you will go as part of history and your tour of Israel...no need to go out of your way.

This place can be hard to find. With religion is same as with art, if you are believer it means everything to you, otherwise there is only a bunch of rocks (or bones in this case)... I found quite disturbing to pray next to a dead body if this is the real King David whatsoever.
