There are many things to see in the area, and this seemed to be the most difficult to access. There is no signage to indicate what you're seeing, and people must enter through the same narrow doorway that others are exiting from, so it's crowded...More

It was a squeeze to get in and out as there's only one entrance. Men and women are separated (not sure why). Not really much to see. There were signs not to take pictures but some did anyway.

I found this an odd place. Men and women are separated which didn't bother me. A large group in front of me were told by the guards to cover their heads, but myself and others didn't need to. It's a very small area and they...More

Nice to see the tomb but esecially the synagoge in which a service just ended. The people inside were very friendly amnd gave the oppotunity to make some really nice pictures of the inside and of themselves. Really worthwhile to have visited it.

The entry to the tomb was crowded. Men are on one side women are on the other. There isn't much to see so you are in and out quickly.

One side for men, and the other for women. This site is small and there were several men praying. Worth a quick stop if you're in the area.

In a part of the old city is a room where the tomb of King David is said to be. Men visit on one side and women on the other.. Difficult to get near it sometimes due to the ardent worshippers.

This is one of the places in Jerusalem that is the "traditional" site of something, meaning there is little or no evidence supporting the claim. In this case, while there is good reason to believe one of ancient Israel's kings is buried in this tomb,...More

King David’s Tomb was a fascinating look at how Israel is using a old historic Tomb to be a modern Synagogue. Stop here for good visit. Be prepared to have genders be separated by tradition (ladies in one side and men in the other, but...More
