Tombs of the Nobles

The Tombs of the Nobles
The Tombs of the Nobles were  ordained  to  the  rulers  of Aswan and Elephantine Island in the old years. They are located on the west bank of Aswan. The tombs are carved in sandstone. They have a historical importance that points them at the spotlight of the tombs of Upper Egypt. The most important of these tombs are Mekhu and Sabni tombs that act the architectural style of the tombs at that time. The dedications on the walls of the tombs prove the titles of the governors of Upper Egypt, the posts they occupied and the characters they played to protect the area as well as their journeys in middle of Africa.
