Save your steps to this place, I stay at the St. George Guesthouse and American Colony when I am in Jerusalem, and pass by this site almost daily. They are open only for special events, and no hours are listed. It is gated and surrounded by a large stone wall, which blocks you from seeing anything of the site. This is a shame because, I have found this site mentioned in so many travel guides and mentioned in archaeological magazines. Until they opt to open this up to the regular public, save your self and your feet and pass on this one.

It is open only for specific cultural events, in particular for an outdoor music festival organized by the French General Consulate in December. There's not much to see but it's a nice outdoor venue for concerts.

We used a new guide about Jerusalem and found the place mentioned in it.So we arrived at the Damascus gate and walked from there on Salah el Din road .The attraction was quoted under number 46. We arrived at the locked gates.No sign about open hours or phone number .Just the French inscription on the iron gate: Tombeaux des Rois and a french flag.None of the shop owners in the vecinity knew what is going on till on guy from a nearby trv.agency told us that the site is closed because of renovations. Anyway, the place was a burial site from the period of the Second Temple.Some of the remains are now at the Louvre museum.This place is considered one of the biggest sites in the area.
