Asasif Tombs

Asasif Tombs, Luxor, Egypt


Asasif Tombs, Luxor, Egypt


The Asasif Tombs lies next to the entrance to the Temple of Hatshepsut, and sees few visitors. Hence, they may not be open should you wish the explore.
These tombs were built for dignitaries during the 25th and 26th Dynasties, a period when Egypt was first ruled by Nubian kings, then by kings of Tanis.
The layout of the tombs are not uncommon, a experior entrance than the inner tomb with wall-decorations. Much has survived badly, but there are still plenty of fine reliefs and paintings.
