Visit the Tomb of Harwa
The second pillared hall (1999)

Exit the tomb

The walls of the second pillared hall are decorated with the Ritual of the Opening of the Mouth. This was a ceremony that took place in the course of the funeral and, in the tomb of Harwa it leads to a separation of the body from the soul.  The body is transported to the depths of hell through a shaft that opens in the northwest corner of the hall.  The soul continued on the journey toward eternal rebirth.
