Though not quite as majestic as the necropolis of the pharaohs in Egypt, the tombs here nevertheless have their own gravitas. It’s unfortunate, but most of the artefacts that might have been buried here are long looted, leaving only the solid rock Doric architecture. It’s thought that the walls were once decorated with frescoes and covered in stucco. Stairs lead down into rectangular courts where loved ones would conduct a ceremonial meal on the death anniversaries of those buried here.
Though the tombs were never actually used by royalty, but rather hundreds of aristocrats, an atmosphere of mystery and stillness pervades the air here. This might be due to the prominent Egyptian influence that seems to have gone into the tomb’s construction. Outside the oppressive tomb, there is the wonderful openness of the sea. The place is otherworldly.
