Ramose was a governor of Thebes and a vizier
in the reign of Amenhotep III and Akhenaten. The tomb is the
most beautiful and the largest in the necropolis.
It was never finished though, because Ramose moved with Akhenaten
to serve the sun cult religion at Al-Amarna City in El-Menya.
The tomb has two distinguished art styles, the regular and
Amarna art, which was associated with the then-new cult introduced
The entrance of the tomb takes you to a courtyard and then
to a hypostyle
hall lined by 32 columns. Part of the paintings here shows
Ramose's funeral procession in details with the gathering
of mourners, wailing women and funeral dancers (See Image
A central door leads you to a small eight-pillared hall then
the tomb's shrine (See Image 1). Those two were left undecorated.
The door has notable bas-reliefs with the representation of
the two different art styles.
A passageway in the hypostyle hall descends to a four-pillared
burial chamber and 4 smaller rooms.
