The city and description behind the history of this monument does it no justice. The discovery rivals that of King Tut. The tombs themselves have the museum built around them which is unique and gives it a sense of pomp. Shame that this museum does not get more visits. It is definitely worth the trip and its artifacts are beautiful.... More
