According to Egyptian lore this son of Ramses was sent to bring back the Israelites to Egypt and stop the Exodus. He was caught and drowned when Moses closed the Yam Suf. The sea gave his body back to be buried. Amazing!

A tomb for one of Ramesis II sons, the colours are still vivid on the walls. You can see the traps that were laid for the tomb robbers. Take good shoes are the tomb is steep and stuffy.

One of the tombs in the valley. You can pay extra for more tomb visits but some are more elaborate than others. Research which ones to see in advance.

the tombs in The valley of the Kings are all different, depending in part on how long the kings lived. Some did not live long enough to have very elaborate tombs dug, but this one is deep and long, so one of the best to...More

No highlight here. A couple of sarcophagus and a deep tunnel, but nothing worthy of notice. We took the 2, 8 and 11 and paid extra for the 9, this was the less attractive of the bunch.

The guide books and our own guide recommended this. I was rather disappointed compared with others that I saw

What makes this tomb different and worth seeing are the plaster walls that were unfinished as the Pharoah died before it was completed and the work stopped. Worth seeing even though it is a longer decline walk.
