"Tut-Ankh-Amun Tomb" Valley of the Kings Tip by Diana75

Valley of the Kings, Luxor: 132 reviews and 217 photos

Tut-Ankh-Amun Tomb (now permanently closed) is near Merenptah tomb, which we visited.

The tomb was discovered by the English Lord Carter under the tomb of Ramses VI.

Actually it was discovered by mistake: inside Ramses VI's funeral room was an opening going down to Tut-Ankh-Amun's tomb, the only one found intact.

All the items found in the tomb, except a sarcophagus and the Tut-Ankh-Amun's mummy, were moved to the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.

It's interesting that Tut-Ankh-Amun is well-known in history because of his wealthy and not because of his personal accomplishments.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
