Tomb of King Tutankhamun (Tut), Luxor

3.9
One of the most famous Ancient Egyptian sites, Tomb of King Tutankhamun (Tut) has inspired myth and legend in the modern era, and now forms part of the World Heritage-listed Theban Necropolis. The boy king's tomb was discovered in 1922 by Egyptologist Howard Carter, and its wealth of gold and riches--meant to travel with King Tut into the afterlife--are now on display in a museum in Cairo. Step into the burial chamber to examine wall decorations depicting King Tut's passage into the underworld, where he is welcomed by Osiris. Unlike many other tombs in the Valley of the Kings, this one remained largely intact, and the subsequent deaths of those who excavated it gained widespread media attention for the "curse of the pharaohs."
