The Valley of the
Kings is one of the worlds' most amazing burial
grounds. Infact, for over five hundred years, most of the
pharaohs and nobles of were buried here (1500-1070 B.C.).
It is located in Upper Egypt on the west side of the Nile, opposite Luxor.There are two parts of the Valley of the Kings: the East Valley and the West Valley. Most tourists go to the East Valley because it is here that you can visit some of the tombs of the pharaohs such as Tutankhamun's tomb and Ramesses the Great's tomb.
The tombs contained royal mummies as well as jewellery, furniture, statues, food and more! The walls were painted with scenes from the lives of the ancient Egyptians as well as tales of the gods. They were amazing! Unfortunately, tomb robbers have robbed most of the tombs and so much of the treasure has been stolen.
