David's Tomb - Review

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

  • When in Jerusalem this is another place that is a must visit. The place is historic cause it has the resting place of King David. Apart from this, close by is the place where Jesus had the last Supper. Supposedly it was later converted into a mosque but now back as a room. You can see few more places around the area which are connected to Jesus.

  • A really interesting place to take a tour in , If your in the mood to get a little chilled and cooled down on a hot summer day and you are in Jerusalem I would recommend going to row underground tunnels located just beneath King David's tomb. It has a really interesting atmosphere to it . But take in mind that usually there's water down there and it'll be best if your wearing some kind of slippers so your shoes wont get wet .

  • King David's Tomb just outside the Zion Gate is a quiet place to meditate and pray. While no one is truly sure if this is the site of King David's burial it does provide a place for contemplation. The disturbing thing is that to many this is merely a tourist attraction. Smiling tourists lean against the kever (Tomb) to have their photos taken. Appropriate manners and respect at this historic site would be appreciated.

  • A very special place to daven, in the very resting place of the great Kings of Israel: King David, King Solomon and others. Worth a visit!

  • 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.
