King David's Tomb, Jerusalem

3.8
Visit the site of King David's Tomb, traditionally seen as the final resting place of the King of Israel. Nestled in a ground-floor room of an ancient, delapidated Byzantine church, it is not known whether the site is the real burial place of King David, or a cenotaph. Nevertheless, the church and sarcophagus, covered with a blue velvet cloth, are still revered by Jewish worshippers from all around the world, who come here to pay their respects to the legendary king. King David's Tomb is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Jerusalem Edition.
