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.

Is this really King David's Tomb?

We dropped by King David's Tomb on a quick excursion outside the south city walls when we also visited the room of the Last Supper. I think this site has more meaning to religious people as there were men dropping by to say a quick prayer then quickly moved on.

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.
