Information
The secret Valley of the Kings is located on the West bank of the river Nile at Luxor. It is situated 16 Miles from Luxor train station. It was used for burial; there are many kings between 1504 -1000 BC, buried in this valley. Moreover, the shapes of the tombs have been changed from pyramids style to the cut rock tombs in the mountain. The Valley of the Kings actually has two sections, the East Valley and the West Valley. The East Valley, in which most of the tombs of the New Kingdom Pharaohs can be found, is one of the most places visited by tourists. It consists of 62 tombs, which were arranged at first according to their dates of discovery, but after that they were geographically arranged. The most known tombs are King Thutmosis I, Thutmosis III, Tut-Ankh-Amon, King Ramses VI, King Mrenptah and Amenhotep II. The tomb of Tut-Ankh-Amun is famous as it was the only tomb found intact as it evidently had remained hidden until its discovery in 1922.
