JERUSALEM’S OLD CITY – THE ETERNAL CAPITAL
King David’s Tomb Located on Mount Zion in a 1,000-year-old building, people come here to pay tribute to the great King David, who is most notably famous for composing the Book of Psalms and establishing a unified capital for Israel. A medieval tradition places his tomb at this location.
