So glad to see the tomb again after so many (30) years. Very well preserved with plenty of colors depicting the deceased. Should be one of the highlights of the "private" tombs in Saqqara. A must for everybody.

The hieroglyphics present in the tomb are beautiful. The coloring still present and vibrant in areas. Not a common stop on most tourists tours but was less crowded the Giza. Plus more to see, touch and experience.

Extra ticket is needed, +30.- LE and the same ticket allows the entry to the butchers tomb (Iruka-ptah). Both tombs are fantastic. Colorful statues and wall paintings – absolutely worth the extra ticket! Also needs a guard, possibly find the “key-holder-chief-guard” to get in, because...More
