Time Out says

Pay your respects to one of the most outstanding figures of the 20th century.

From a young age, David Ben Gurion, Israel’s first prime minister, dreamed of settling the Negev and helping the desert bloom. A man of his word, after retiring, he relocated down south and became an active member of Kibbutz Sde Boker. Gurion’s final wish was to be buried in the Negev, and become one with the land he loved so dearly. Today, his tomb—overlooking a breathtaking view of Tsin canyon and Ovdat highlands in the heart of the Negev—can be visited by the public.
