Description Icon


The building complex is one of the most important monuments in Jerusalem, with a long and complex architectural history starting in the second century AD and continuing until the 14th century, hosting one of the earliest and better preserved examples of Crusader architecture of the "Kingdom of Jerusalem". The lower floor hosts the "Tomb of King David", among the largest cenotaphs ever built, while the upper floor is known as "The Room of the Last Supper" where, according to the Christian tradition, Jesus celebrated the Easter dinner and from where he was taken into custody prior his crucifixion.
