Instead, most of them decided to be buried in rock-cut tombs in the Valley of the Kings as the final place where they rest in peace away from the tomb thieves. Ramses II and the golden Pharoah King Tutankhamen are among the most famous kings to be buried here, the double Temple of God Sobek in Kom Ombo, also book an optional excursion to see the rock-carved Temple of Abu Simbel, or experience the Hot Air Balloon Ride Above Luxor, the largest open-air museum in the world.
