Went inside this tomb alomg with a few others the colours and paintings are out of this world . Hard to believe that this was done hundreds of yrs b.c ago. The size of the tunnel the burial chamber everything is just amazing.

the painting are good, the tomb is good, and it is cooler inside the tomb, it is a good break from the heat outside.

It cost an extra very modest amount (about $3.50) to visit this tomb, and it was among the best decorations of any tomb, plus we had the place just about to ourselves--very nice!
