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.

King David's tomb is marked first by a great statue outside. Upon entry, there are separate sides for men and women, with men being required to have a head covering. This is a site of worship so you need to respect those who are gathered there. Once in, the room has a sarcophagus covered in material, although the actual remains... More

If you think about it for a moment- it is an incredible site. A presumed burial place of David, King of Israel . As Jewish religious tradition demands men and women have to be separated to enter the two different sides of the famous tomb. Men's section on the right is preceded by the Synagogue area. Women just walk in... More

A good historic site. Easy to navigate. Not as spiritual as I thought it would be. But good overall.
