About David's Tomb, Jerusalem
King David's Tomb is one of the controversial sites in Jerusalem. Some believe that he was buried at Mount Zion in an embellished tomb while some believe that this Tomb is too modern in its design to truly be the King’s resting place.
For tourists, however, this does not reduce the mystique of the place and pilgrims wait in long queues to be able to pay their respect and pray at the tomb.
A visit here will give you a peak into the faith and belief of the locals and if you can spend a few minutes here, do offer a small prayer to complete the experience.

David's Tomb, Jerusalem Reviews
This is said to be the holy resting place (tomb)of King David. It is peaceful, quiet and serene. A great place to pray, meditate or just sit and relax. It is a schul (Jewish place of worship) so please dress and behave appropriately.(Phones muted, no music or eating) The area inside is gender separated. There are restrooms nearby that are clean and well maintained.
Some places at special because of the faithful who visit. This is one of those places. There were people there praying and reading scriptures. Men and women have separate sides. The men in our group had some one ask for money but the sign outside clearly says not to give a donation. If you visit please be respectful. A tour group came thought while we were they and they were loud and it was very disrespectful for those praying. A post d sign says to be silent.
Spectacular views from the Church top. Interesting history and right in the mids of a former “hotspot”. Although I came here as a tourist myself it felt a bit weird looking at the Tomb of David. Reason being that local (what I guess were Rabbis) did their praying routine while all us tourists were floating in and out.
Jarusalem of palestine 🇯🇴☝️ Hz. Davud(a.s) is muslim.
A great place to go when you tour the old City
