The Valley of the Kings (Biban el-Melouk) is a limestone valley situated in the Theban Hills where the mummified bodies of many Egyptian pharaohs were buried. The Valley of the Kings marks a period in ancient Egyptian history in which the pharaohs abandoned the pyramid style and chose instead tombs dug within limestone in order to preserve the mummies for eternity and prevent grave robbing.

The tombs at the Valley of the Kings, although stripped of many of their contents centuries ago, still display fantastic wall paintings depicting the lives of the pharaohs in ancient Egypt, down to the smallest detail.

The most famous tomb at the Valley of the Kings is that of Tutankhamen, discovered in pristine condition by Howard Carter in 1922. The many treasures found in Tutankhamen's tomb are now exhibited in the Egyptian Antiquities Museum in Cairo.
