The tomb is about 107 meters (351 ft) long. Horemheb
was an army general who usurped the throne to become the last
Pharaoh of the 18th
A staircase leads to a first sloping corridor then another staircase
takes you to the second sloping corridor ended with a shaft
and a two-pillared hall, both are decorated with figures depicting
Horemheb presenting offerings to the deities. A staircase from
this hall descends through a corridor and another staircase
to an antechamber
and then to the burial chamber.
The first part of the burial chamber is flanked with two rows
of 3 pillars and the second lower part has the empty red-granite
of the king. The burial chamber has a number of smaller chambers
attached to it. The decorations of the walls in the burial chamber
are unfinished but were useful for examining the different stages
of the painting. The decorations are from the Book of Gates.
The tomb was closed in 1994 for restoration work but was opened
again in 2002 after adding a wooden floor, improving illumination
and enhancing its paintings.
