Behind King David Hotel is some more archeology.
Just realised this tomb has a circular stone rolled next to it. Look hard and you can see this tomb has an iron door too, which is locked.
This one is nearby, different to the one shown in the above three pics. Doesn’t have an obvious entrance.
Not sure who these tombs belonged to, or how old they are. Suggestions please?
Took another visit to some of the tombs in between the outer walls of the old city and the Mount of Olives
This is Zechariah’s tomb
Here is the tomb of Absalom, King David’s rebellious son who got his hair stuck in a tree and was killed. Both of these you can’t enter the gap underneath. Apparently a lot of the stone work was unfinished and the back of the tomb the stones and not hewn as neatly as the front.
There are some more interesting caves and places to explore..
…but it appeared to be all closed and locked up when I was there. Some ancient writing can be seen though if you have sharp eyes to look high up.
