It takes a bit of a climb to get here but at the end of it, you'll be glad you did. The walls and ceilings have layers of different shades and the outer facade of the tomb is itself a masterpiece in carving.

This one is a bit beyond the other royal tombs and in bright sun you might not even notice it, but when the sun is right you see past the erosion to the carved details, like an earn and a faded inscription.

Photos don't begin to reveal how wonderful this sight is. This is one of those "got to be there" to really get the real perspective.

Amazing, truly unbelievable historical sites. Travel company " Tourist Israel", along with our guide Ahamad A Hussein and driver were caring, knowledgeable and kind!

Neat little tomb on the back way down from the high place of sacrifice. You will be alone and its in a great location.

Nobody was there, we were really alone. Do not miss the scriptures engraved on the entrance. Otherwise, like all the tombs there, it's beautifully coloured. No so easy to find. Follow the sign but stay near the rocks on the right.

Some of the tombs would be very hard to find without a guide because you would walk past them without noticing them. The coloring on the walls are exceptional.
