Bakhariyagrobnitsas oasis

From an office of Inspection of antiquities you can pass down on a hillock and, having passed through the road, to reach to Carat Kasr Salim, a dusty crest where there are two tombs open for public few years back. Both belonged to local dealers of the XXVI dynasty which property has allowed them to build such tombs which intended earlier only for officials of a high rank. The tomb the Back Amon ef-Ankh is shipped in a ditch with abrupt edges. The hall of a tomb is decorated with round columns (that especially for Bakhariya) and drawn okhry deities (direct attention to people at the left, bringing gifts) which are allocated with brown and black colour on a snow-white background. A row has placed a tomb of his offspring, Bannentiu, on day of mine of 10 m – be accurate not to hit the head about an iron lattice and a small entrance of a hall. Here columns square, and walls are painted brick, yellowish, blue and black on a snow-white background. Certain from gods only are outlined, but there is a beautiful solar boat of dark colour and on a wall embalming process on the right is shown.
It seems oddish, but certain from the tombs found by Fakhri in 1930th, later have been lost, absorbed by sand and built up with countrymen. The tomb of Zad-Honsu ef-Ankh has been open by the ponovy only in 2000 under houses in a quarter Sheikh el-Subi. The governor at the time of board of the Pharaoh of the XXVI dynasty of Amasis, it has been buried in the alabaster sarcophagus concluded in the calcareous. The stone as consider, has been extracted about Tel el-Amarny and Giza, delivered across Nile, and then it was dragged by 200 km to Baviti. Since then three more tombs belonging to a family of governors of an oasis of Badi-Isid have been found, 2 of them contained sarcophagi and mummies. These tombs still certain time will not be open for visits. But other tomb belonging to Amonkhote-p Hugh, the governor of XVIII or to the XIX dynasty has opened. It is on a crest, called Carat Hilva, in 3 km from the small town to the northwest from the road to Farafra though it is heavy for finding without the conductor and it not completely costs the spent efforts.
