This 4000-Year-Old Egyptian Tomb Is Now Open To The Public

Now you can take endless selfies in this Saqqara pyramid tomb, which is available to the public for the first time since its discovery in 1940

If you’re a fan of mummies, then you’ll be delighted to know that a tomb inside of Saqqara pyramid at Saqqara area near Egypt's Saqqara necropolis, in Giza is now officially open to the public. The tomb is estimated to be 4,3000 years old and has just finished being restored. The tomb is believed to be that of a senior royal official, known as ‘Mehu’. According to Dr. Zahi Hawass, Egypt’s former minister of antiquities, Mehu was “an important man, he was a vizier, he was a chief of the judges, he was also the director of the palace”.

The tomb has a long, narrow corridor with six chambers, and also contains chambers for Mehu’s son, Mery Re Ankh, and his grandson, Hetep Ka II. Needless to say, people are already lining up to take selfies in the newly-opened tomb.
