The Tomb and Burial Chamber of Pharaoh Ramses III is among the over sixty such tombs scattered all over the Valley of the Kings on the west bank of the river Nile. Like several other tombs, this also has stone carvings adorning the passage walls.

This tomb is open for visitors, quite long spread inside the mountain.Don't take photos inside the tomb, some time the guards suggest you for the photo and latter the officers at the exit counter traps you.

The guide gives all of the detail behind and then the walk to the tomb and back. The detail in these places is so interesting and would be well worth half a day on its own.

I liked the visit to the Valley of the Kings because as many people I thought that the pyramids were the only places where kings and queens were buried. It is interesting to see the work that was done in their behalf.
