King David's Tomb

King David's Tomb

King David's tomb is located on Mount Zion in Jerusalem. Jewish, Christian and Muslim traditions believe it to be the final resting place of King David, biblical ruler of Jerusalem.

This belief has been passed down through the generations, and dates back at least 1,000 years.

In addition, many Christians believe that the upper floor in the structure served as the Last Supper room, where Jesus and his disciples dined prior to his execution.

This site is particularly holy to all three religions, while historians are divided as to the historic truth of this site, it has become an important site for pilgrims from all three faiths.

The site is run by the Diaspora Yeshiva, Yeshivat Hatfutzot, which was given authority over the building and its upkeep. It also includes a holocaust museum, Israel's first, which was built prior to the Yad Va'Shem Museum. This museum was built in 1948, immediately after the inception of the State of Israel.
