Tomb of King Tutankhamun (Tut), Luxor

Ruin · Tourist Spot
One of the most famous Ancient Egyptian sites, Tomb of King Tutankhamun (Tut) has inspired myth and legend in the modern era, and now forms part of the World Heritage-listed Theban Necropolis. The boy king's tomb was discovered in 1922 by Egyptologist Howard Carter, and its wealth of gold and riches--meant to travel with King Tut into the afterlife--are now on display in a museum in Cairo. Step into the burial chamber to examine wall decorations depicting King Tut's passage into the underworld, where he is welcomed by Osiris. Unlike many other tombs in the Valley of the Kings, this one remained largely intact, and the subsequent deaths of those who excavated it gained widespread media attention for the "curse of the pharaohs."

  • As of June 2021, most of the King Tut treasures are upstairs at the Egyptian Museum (to be moved to the Grand Egyptian Museum when it is completed). But this tomb is a great addition to your Tut...  more »
  • You need to pay extra 300 LE Egyptian Pound (20 USD) to enter and meet Mr. Tut. But trust me it is totally worthy. This is a chance of a life time to meet a King 3500 years old.  more »
  • You have to pay 300 EGP entry fee extra. This is small tomb but very beautiful and well preserved. You can see mummy of kind Tuts and some other objects of him.  more »
  • Super cool decor! Great backdrops for the gram! #HotMamaMonday My kids came out speaking a different language (it was like Latin or something) But 10/10 recommend
  • Tutankhamun (/ˌtuːtənkɑːˈmuːn/, Ancient Egyptian: twt-ꜥnḫ-jmn), Egyptological pronunciation Tutankhamen (/ˌtuːtənˈkɑːmɛn/) (c. 1342 – c. 1325 BC), was an ancient Egyptian pharaoh who was the last of his royal family to rule during the end of the 18th Dynasty (ruled c. 1334 – 1325 BC in the conventional chronology) during the New Kingdom of Egyptian history. His father was the pharaoh Akhenaten, believed to be the mummy found in the tomb KV55. His mother is his father's sister, identified through DNA testing as an unknown mummy referred to as "The Younger Lady" who was found in KV35.
