Deir el-Medina is on the west bank near Luxor. It is the remnants of a village where the artisans of the royal tombs lived, and the tombs of these workers. The paintings adorning these tombs are exquisite and a colourful depiction of daily Egyptian life. Most notable is the tomb of an artist named Sennedjem. It has a vaulted tomb... More

This small tomb was cut and decorated for the craftsman Senedjem, who lived in the workmen's village. The entrance is steep but the interior is stunning.

If you are visiting Deir el-Medina, this tomb should be definitely on your list! One of the most well-preserved decorations and it is quite spacious compared to the others. When you are at Deir el-Medina, the local "guides" will suggest you in which sequence visit the tombs. They usually leave this one at the end :)

This tomb is included with your ticket to Deir el-Medina. Not as large, elaborate, ir carved as the tombs in the Valley of the Kings, but the color is amazingly vibrant.

Notable scenes on the wall are: 1. Right Wall - The solar cat slashing the Apophis... More

If you decide to pay a visit to the Valley of the Artisans and lacks a little time, you should visit the tomb of Sennedjem.
