Valley of the Kings
The final resting place of Egypt’s rulers from the 18th to the 20th dynasty is home to tombs including the great pharaoh Ramses II and boy pharaoh Tutankhamen. The tombs were well stocked with all the material goods a ruler might need in the next world. Most of the decoration inside the tombs is still well preserved.
It is one of the most beautiful & best preserved of all of the Ancient Egyptian temples. The temple was built on three levels with two wide ramps in a central position joining the levels together.
