It was good to be able to visit, on the other hand when I went the tomb was divided in to two ... one area for women and one for men... unfortunate... The place of the Last Supper of Jesus with his disciples is said to be also near there as well as the Dormition Chapel and Crypt that I... More

I guess I was expecting more. It is exciting to think that you are actually seeing King David's tomb, which it might be. But there was nothing special about it. The men walk in one side of this closet sized room, and the women walk in the other. Half the coffin in on the male side, and the other half... More

Just like the Upper Room and the Via Delarosa, this location may be more significant symbolically than actuality. Historians agree that King David was not buried here, at least not initially. Only recently (1000 years ago) has this spot been recognized as King David’s tomb. It is thought that his bones may have been moved to this site nearly 1000... More

I say its an attraction because there are people there genuinely praying for Mashiach Ben David, Messiah Son of David to come. It is a special place and sacred for those who spend countless hours there praying and meditating the Torah. Be respectful but also do some research on where King David was buried...

We visited David's Tomb during our tour of Mt Zion. The tomb is now available for religious observance and worship and is hence split between sections for men and women. My own name is "David" so this tomb has a special personal significance. It is impossible not to be spiritually moved by the Ancient Historical Location and Spirit of the... More

In the crusader building beneath the Hall of the Last Supper. Possibly where Jesus his disciple's feet. Where the Jews came to pray before the Western Wall was open to them.

It's a short visit. Nothing much to see. This is where King David's supposed to be buried. You will see a crypt to represent his tomb, but that's it. Nothing much is open for you to go in and see.
