Not really a tomb and more of a monument. Nothing to go out of your way to see, but if you're in the Mount of Olives or enjoy looking at monumental structures, then definitely take a look.

the name of the tomb is controversial as some say that this is the tomb of David's son and others believe it was a tomb of a wealthy nobleman, either way...the tomb is impressive and worth admiring. Right next to it is also the tomb...More
