Jerusalem

Tomb of King David

The traditional biblical version says that King David was buried in Jerusalem on the mountain Zion. Near the tomb of King David there is a functioning synagogue of his name. In the IV century there was a Christian church of St. David, which was destroyed by the Persians, and in 1524 the El Daud mosque was erected in its place, the minaret of which can be seen today. A large stone sarcophagus is covered with a veil on which the crowns of the Torah scrolls, symbolizing the 22 Israeli kingdoms, are embroidered, and the words from the First Book of Kings are embroidered: "David, the king of Israel, is alive and there." The legend tells that behind the tomb of King David were hidden the treasures of the First Temple. Many conquerors of Jerusalem (Persians, Crusaders, Mamluks) destroyed the grave in search of treasure.

On the top floor is the room of the holy supper. It is clear that this is not the same room, the building itself was built later. But this is an attempt to recreate that atmosphere.

Wall of Tears
