Tomb of Ramses III Tours and Activities
Located on the west bank of the Nile in Luxor, the Valley of the Kings is the final resting place of the last of Egypt’s warrior pharaohs. At 125 meters long, the Tomb of Ramses III is one of the longest in the Valley of the Kings. It has been well preserved, with its colorful sunken reliefs of traditional ritual texts still clearly evident.
All 63 of the royal tombs here are different, and what’s unique about the Tomb of Ramses III are the foreign tributes located within its side chambers, including detailed pottery imported from the Aegean and depictions of royal armoury and boats. In the last of these side rooms there’s a bas-relief of two blind musicians that gives the tomb its alternative name: ‘Tomb of the Harpists’.
In the chamber beyond is an aborted tunnel; after realising they were building into the neighboring tomb, ancient builders apparently shifted the axis to the west, constructing a corridor leading to a hall featuring grand pillars and walls decorated with scenes from the Book of Gates.
