Often called the Tomb of the Harpists due to scenes showing harpists playing, the tomb of Ramses III depicts the events in the life of Egypt's last warrior Pharaoh. This tomb is one of the longest at 125m and has long passage ways with wall and ceiling decorations right down to the burial chamber. The tomb's decoration consists of various books from the "Book of the Dead" including the Book of Caverns, the Book of Gates, Litany of Ra and the Book of Coming Forth by Day. It is widely believed that Ramses III was poisoned by his queen so her son could rule. Sad that a man who fought hard to save Egypt was betrayed by his family.

Ramses III ruled from about 1186-1155 BC and was known as the last of the warrior pharaohs. His tomb is one of the largest and longest at 410 ft (125 m). Long passageways adorned with detailed, colorful reliefs and hieroglyphics lead down to the burial chamber. You won’t find Ramses III here. His mummy is in the Cairo Museum and the sarcophagus/lid in museums outside of Egypt.

Being in this tomb gave me cause to pause. The spirit of ancient Egypt surrounds you and I would have loved to have just sat alone in there and enjoyed the solemnity of the place.

You will enter a long passageway covered with colorful depictions, painting and carvings. Loved the long boat that symbolically carries the Pharaoh to the next world and the snakes that ward off evil. You just do not know where to look first. Even the ceiling is painted with hieroglyphics. The colors and everything are so well preserved. This is one of the most popular tombs in the Valley of the Kings which is important to know since the admission ticket only includes visiting 3 tombs.
