We wandered across the tomb what walking around town. It's about the size of the tombs you see else where. Excellent commentary on the board next to the tomb. Locals sit in the shade that it provides. Restaurants surrounding it are expensive.

It is pretty crazy that a tomb that was made 2000 years ago, is situated down a quiet street in Kas town. Really lovely area of town, with interesting boutiques & of course a tomb with lions on it!

Very nice atmosphere around this place. You can look down the street with many boutiques or have an ice-cream in the kiosk nearby and enjoy this part of town.

This ancient tomb caught our eye as we were walking through the streets of Kas. It felt surreal seeing something that dates from over 2000 years ago. A definite photo stop!
