Tombs of Nobles

Tombs of Nobles on the high cliff at West Bank of Aswan, are honeycombed with the tombs of princes, governors (nomarchs), keepers of the Gate of the South and other dignitaries of ancient Elaphantine. The easiet way up is to use the stairs that cut across the hill diagonally. On the hilltop is Kubbet al-Hawa, which is further hike away from Tombs of Nobles.
