Details / Information  Overview:

The layout of the cemetery seems to have been pre-planned. All the tombs belong to the rock-cut chamber tomb with an aisle, with the exception of the unique built dome tomb no. 200.

Rough stones and pyramidal or slab stele were erected over the tombs as markers. They were all family tombs, containing multiple burials, either placed directly on the floor or inside sarcophagus.

The grave offerings - pottery, weapons, tools and jewellery - provide us with useful information on art, religion and social organization of the period.
