Tutankhamen is Egypt's most famous pharaoh for the fact that his tomb has been left intact since antiquities. Its treasures has bewildered the world ever since it was discovered in 1922. Tomb today hosts his real Mummified body.

I felt I was part of a documentary when I visit d this tomb. There was a long line to get in but it was undoubtedly worthy to wait since being inside was a gift.

This is a must see because Tut's body is still in the tomb. While just a small tomb, it is still really cool to see.
