Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

According to Jewish, Christian, and Muslim traditions, David's Tomb is located on Mount Zion (in front of the Zion Gate), near the Dormition Abbey.
In reality King David is buried in a large tomb, where are the remains of King Solomon.
But here is a sacred place where the people is praying.

King David's Tomb is thought to be located in Mount Zion. It is sacred to Jews, Christian and Muslims. King David's Tomb is near the Abbey of the Dormition. Jewish students can often be seen praying there. The exact site of King David's Tomb is disputed, but the current location near the Zion Gate is favored.King David's

Located in the old city of Jerusalem, nearby AlAqsa Mosque compound. Very long and interesting history. 1000s of tourists of all faith come to pay respect and offer prayers. Its the only place in the World where Muslims, Christians and Jews come under 1 roof to offers prayers to 1 man. King David or Prophet Daud Allahisallam for the muslims. The room where the tomb is kept is small , so tourists by each faith take turn to enter and offer prayers.

Of Course I Stayed at the King David Hotel too . I Spent a Whole day Visiting the Ancient city of Jerusalem too .and Bethlehem too .I Still wear the Gold Cross around my Neck that I bought in Bethlehem across from the Church of Nativity . I Wish the People of Israel would Learn to get along with their Neighboring Countries .

Awesome experience! Can you imagine being where David ruled? Although the door was locked, I enjoyed seeing that there was a Psalms Room. 🙏🏽

This area of Mount Zion is interesting to explore (see the bathroom area too!), King David's tomb has separate entrances for men and women, and is sometimes crowded, like when we visited in November 2022. This is probably NOT the real location of David's tomb, but this Mount Zion (and the nearby Last Supper Room) is worth a trip for serious religious people.

What can I say,does not matter if you or if you don't that this is King David tomb, as far as I was concerned the whole trip to the holy land including King David's tomb was just moving.

If you are visiting the room of the Last Supper then a slight detour in the same building will take you to King David's Tomb - or at least this is how it is described. It is quiet and not well signposted. It was empty when I looked in to the small room and the curator had disappeared temporarily. A sort of weird place that has serious significance for some religions.

Not as solemn and peaceful a place as I would have expected. During my visit, in the prayer/reading room adjacent to the room where the tomb lay, one of the greeters began signing and dancing with one of the foreign visitors.

There are separate rooms for male and female visitors. I don’t know the difference, as I went to the room marked for MEN.

King David's Tomb is on the ground level of the building on Mt Zion. There are separate entries for men and women. Given its proximity to the Room of the Last Supper, many Christians also take the opportunity to view King David's Tomb. The casket is draped with a velvet covering. King David was a warrior king; he is a hero to the Jewish people. Many religious Jews pray here, please remember that it is a sacred place.
