Merenptah lived long and so his tomb got the time to get decorated. An amazing experience going down to witness the dedicated work of the artisans of those times. An exhilarating experience, overall...

Tomb of Merenptah is situated in the Valley of the Kings. Visited this tomb using the entrance ticket that allows you to see 3 tombs. Very interesting and well worth a visit.

This is one of the fascinating tombs to be explored in the Valley of the Kings. It offers such old yet still detailed painted hieroglyphs. The staff supposedly do not add to the original reliefs but diligently work to maintain their integrity.

Merenptah's tomb, like the others, all have different qualitys' layout, glyphs and features. Other than Tut's, it's hard to have a favourite, other than to say, buy the extra tickets to see as many as your time permits. Sorry, no photos permitted inside

Your entrance ticket gives you access to 3 tombs and this ia s fairly decent one to choose. Some good hieroglyphics and carvings and a fine sarcophagus.

If you get the Luxor Pass, then go here, but if you just get the ticket for three tombs, pass this one up. There aren't all that many carvings or paintings, although the sarcophagus is a good one. But there are better tombs, such as...More

The entrance corridors are decorated with texts from the Praising of Re and scenes from the Realm of the Dead (from the Book of the Gates). On the left side of the corridors is an excellent intricately painted relief of the king before Re-Harakhty. These...More
