Creating so many tombs and temples around the city was not an easy job. Huge groups of artisans worked and gave their best effort to build such awe-inspiring historical sites. However, these artisans required a place to settle down. That is how, the Valley of the Artisans or Deir al-Medina (as known in Arabic) was discovered. When visiting the attraction, there are innumerable features to look forward to.

The Tomb of Inherka that belonged to a 19th dynasty servant who worked in the Place of Truth, the Valley of the Kings. This one room tomb has a splendid wall painting. Next to it is the Tomb of Sennedjem (a 2 small chambered) and the temple of Pashedu are other important features of the valley.
