Two ancient tombs open to public in Pyramids plateau

Two ancient tombs belonging to the priest of King Khufu and his son were opened to the public in Giza Pyramids Plateau on Monday April 27 after the end of maintenance works.

Antiquities Minister Mamdouh al-Damaty opened the two tombs located in the western cemetery of the plateau. They date back to the fifth dynasty.

A new route leading directing to the two tombs were built to facilitate visitors' journeys.

The two tombs were discovered in 1925 by US archaeologist George Andrew Reisner.
