Valley of the Kings

While the Valley of the Kings is considerably less grand than the Pyramids in terms of Egyptian funerary complexes, it is still well worth a visit and is amongst Luxor’s most-visited tourist attractions. The Valley of the Kings illustrates some aspects of the Egyptian concept of the afterlife that the Pyramids do not. Some 30 to 40 tombs are open for visitor exploration, although it would be highly ambitious to expect to see so many and taking a look around five is usually sufficient for most tourists. Among the more popular tombs are those of Ramesses IV, Ramesses IX, Merneptah and Ramesses VI.
