Daven at kivrei tzadikim at night

Question:

Can one daven at a kever at night?

Answer:

It is permitted to daven at a kever at night, especially at kivrei tzadikim, as is the minhag to daven at the kever of R’ Shimon bar Yochai on Lag Baomer, Kever Rochel, Shmuel Hanavi etc. Although the gemara says that only a mentally ill person would sleep in a cemetery at night, it is permitted to visit it, and daven at a kever.
