Tomb of Merenptah Tours

Pharoah Merenptah, son of Ramesses II and Queen Isis-Nofret, was entombed in the Valley of Kings in Tomb KV8, more popularly called the Tomb of Merenptah. This paticular tomb was discovered by Howard Carter in 1902, almost a decade before his more famous discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb.

When the tomb was first excavated, it was filled with debris, indicating that it had been open for centuries. While very little in the way of funerary items or furniture was found within, the tomb is notable for the height of its corridors and rooms and wide entrance — stylistic choices that marked the transition between tombs of nineteenth and twentieth century kings. It’s also the second largest tomb in the Valley of Kings.

While Merenptah was originally interred within four nested sarcophagi within Tomb KV8, his mummy was later moved to the tomb of Amenhotep II, discovered by Victor Loret in 1898.

Practical Info

The Tomb of Merenptah sees less tourists than some of the more popular tombs, and as such, many visitors consider it their favorite.
