The tombs or Kim Al Shouqafa are something straight out of an Indiana Jones movie. It's the last private graveyard dedicated to the old Egyptian religion, dug and carved out during the reign of the Antonine Emperors, Second Century A.D. The fusion of pharaoh-nic motifs embedded in Greco-Roman stonework (and vice versa) make this place uniquely creepy cool.
