The King David Hotel was originally built in the 1920s by a wealthy Egyptian Jewish banker and quickly became one of the most prestigious hotels in the Middle East. Over the years, it has hosted countless world leaders, celebrities, and dignitaries, including Winston Churchill, Albert Einstein, and Elizabeth Taylor.



However, the hotel is perhaps best known for the tragic events that took place there in 1946 during the British Mandate period. At that time, Jewish militants carried out a daring attack on the hotel, which was being used as the headquarters of the British military administration. The attack killed 91 people, including British soldiers, hotel staff, and guests.



Despite this dark chapter in its history, the King David Hotel has remained a symbol of resilience and determination. It has undergone extensive renovations and upgrades over the years, and today is a luxurious five-star hotel that attracts visitors worldwide.
