We specifically made our way to the tombs following some research before our trip and must say we were a little disappointed. Cheap enough to get in ( 10 Dirhams ) the place was restricted in size and although the tombs were clear and precise in where they were laid out, the surrounding architecture was not as good as I would have expected. It is okay but nothing spectacular. Maybe my trip to India earlier this year had raised my expectations when visiting such sights. When inside we also unfortunately visited the same time as a large group and as others have mentioned the viewing areas were extremely busy adding to the disappointment we felt. Indeed the activities of the many cats in the area seemed more interesting than the sight, with a particularly scarred pink ( white fur with blood ) cat getting attacked by the others every few minutes. We headed for the tombs in the middle of the day in very hot weather and although it looked impressive from the outside, the inner area left us a little flat. Maybe that's just me.
One last point is to look out for the stork nest and storks on the tall chimney as you enter the tombs. Look up and you cannot miss them. What a sight.
