Valley of the KIngs

`No Cameras`is the rule in Valley of the Kings and many of the tombs elsewhere on the west bank across from Luxor. Here are scans of some postcards we bought – they give a good idea of the quality of the tomb paintings, almost all still intact.

Tombs line the cliffs on the west bank, tombs of nobles typically from the New Kingdom.
