This is one of the early tombs cut in the valley and it belongs
to 18th dynasty's Thutmose III.
A steep entrance leads you down to the first corridor which
takes to a descending room then to another corridor that ends
with a 19-meters-deep well shaft, believed to be cut to deter
tomb robbers. The shaft's ceiling is decorated with yellow stars
on blue background with its walls topped with a frieze.
The opposite door, which leads to the rest of the tomb, was
originally sealed to hide the burial room. Through the door
you arrive into the antechamber
supported by two pillars.
At the end of the antechamber a staircase descends to the burial
chamber which is rectangular in shape with curved corners. It
looks similar to a cartouche.
The chamber is supported by two pillars and has the sarcophagus
of the king. The latter is lavishly decorated with typical figures
of Egyptian deities. The mummy of the Pharaoh was not found
there. It was found with other mummies at a cache in Deir
The decorations of the tomb are painted using plaster. The figures
are stroked in a unique manner like the writings on papyrus.
The walls of the antechamber have figures of hundreds of deities
from the Book of Amduat. The whole book is written in cursive
handwriting on the walls of the burial chamber.
An interesting scene shows the king suckled by a tree representing
Thutmose is shown again with his family.
