The Tomb of Kagemni is easily accessible and has well preserved decoration. Kagemni was a chief justice under Teti. He is depicted in his tomb as a little portly. It was clear that he enjoyed the good life. This tomb was comfortable, being at ground...More

Amazing Mastaba of Ka-GMNI, who was appointed to the rank Chief Justice in the old kingdom. This Mastaba (Tomb) and others in Sakkara has lots of similarities. This site is worth visiting and exploring, especially watching the professional carvings on the walls with too many...More

Outstanding hieroglyphs inside the tombs. It's a must see in Sakkara area. The coloring on the wall is some of the best in Northern Egypt

Kagemni was the overseer of the prophets and the estate of Teti's pyramid. He was also married to the daughter of Pharaoh Teti, Nebti-nubkhet. His mastaba can be compared to Mereruka's, but it is smaller and the present condition of the wall decorations are worse....More

While the Tomb of Ti may have a slight edge, the reliefs in Kagemni's tomb are still pretty amazing, showing scenes of hippo hunting, girls dancing, scribes accounting, and always offerings being presented to Mr. Kagemni himself. The quality of the raised relief is wonderful...More

Very well preserved wall paintings and carvings, colorful, vivid and lots of funny scenes: crocodile – hippopotamus duels, ballet – dancers (maybe this is the first kan-kan illustration?); fine details of animals, like frog, dragonfly, cricket. All fishes can be identified and flowers as well....More
