Tomb of king Merenptah in Luxor | The Second largest tomb

The tomb is considered to be 100% incomplete, as the tomb inscriptions and drawings have been completely completed except for the decorations on the walls at the end of the vestibule after the burial chamber. The columns of the entrance to the burial chamber were broken and vandalized by the workers of the ancient Egyptians, the pharaohs, due to a technical error, as the width of the first coffin was greater than the opening of the burial chamber door.
