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.
