Located in Mt. Zion on the building's primary floor, "The Cenacle" or "Upper Room" is on the second floor above, where Jesus Christ shared his Last Supper with his Apostles. Such a holy, venerated site for both Jews and Christians alike, we encountered pilgrims from throughout the world as we waited in line to view the Tomb of King David, covered by a velvet cloth. Interestingly, access to view the tomb is segregated by male and female, each being able to view a portion of the sarcophagus. I had been unable to enter and touch the tomb upon my initial visit a decade ago, but found the tomb access open on both sides this visit. A deeply moving experience.

Exciting experience

this is a holy place for the jewish people- you can access the tomb behind the dormition church. there is a separation between boys and girls, and only boys can feeely access the tomb. this a place of prayer- and a feeling of holiness surrounds it.

Crowded but interesting experience for the Christian picture taker

We were on a pilgrimage and could not pass up the chance to visit King David's Tomb because of his importance to the Jewish and Christian faith. Practical notes: crowded, men enter on the left, pick up and wear a head covering. Photographers: no flash even though dark, ramp up your iso, travel light...

We were on a pilgrimage and could not pass up the chance to visit King David's Tomb because of his importance to the Jewish and Christian faith. Practical notes: crowded, men enter on the left, pick up and wear a head covering. Photographers: no flash even though dark, ramp up your iso, travel light where my pocket camera served me well, be respectful because there will be men praying, expect post-processing when back home.
