This tomb was discovered by Howard Carter in 1903. The doorway was cut directly into the cliff face. The jambs and the entrance walls were carefully sculptured in sunk and raised relief, beautifully executed, especially the goddess Maat which is seated upon a lily plant of upper Egypt, and the figure of the king offering Maat to Ra-Horakhty, the kings kilt being ornamented with five Urae snake. The first two corridors are decorated with the litany of Ra, and the second and third corridors has unfinished scenes from the book of Imyduat.

The well shaft was never excavated. The walls of this rooms are decorated in a manner totally different from the rest of the valley of the Kings. It is decorated with symbolic representation of funerary objects, symbolic statuettes of gods, each of them remaining in its own sharine, the king standing on the back of a panther, or standing with a harpoon in a small papyrus were found in the tomb of Thutankhamun.
