The tomb of an Ancient Egyptian priest in the Deir el-Bahari Necropolis near the Egyptian city of Luxor, has undergone extensive restoration by the South Asasif Conservation Project.

Footage filmed on Tuesday shows the carefully reconstructed temple and tomb of Karakhamun along with several stone fragments with Hieroglyphs inscribed.

The tombs, as well as a temple, were built by high priest Karakhamun of the Ancient Egyptian god Amun. The complex was almost totally collapsed by the start of the 21st century, however after extensive restoration work by the South Asasif Conservation Project, it is now returning to its former glory.

"We discovered more than 30,000 fragments and shattered decorations and made it our mission in life to rebuild the tomb of Karakhamun and put all these fragments back where they belong," Director of South Asasif Conservation Project Elena Pischikova said.

The South Asasif Conservation Project was founded in 2006 with the aim of restoring and reconstructing the three heavily damaged Kushite tombs belonging to high levels officials in the Ancient Egyptian city of Thebes.
