TT52, the Tomb of Nakht, on Osirisnet


Another great offering from the team at Osirisnet.

Everyone who is interested in ancient Egypt knows of the tomb of Nakht, TT52, one of the better preserved of Luxor, and one of the rare ones which can still be visited.

But this visit often brings with it more frustrations than expected: the tomb, originally very small, is now minuscule with the introduction of protective glass panels. Between the dust which covers these panels and the low lighting, which itself reflects on them, a number of scenes is nearly invisible, in all cases the true value of the scenes cannot be appreciated.

This is why it seemed interesting to us to present to you this monument as at a better time.
