el-Khokha ( Western Thebes )

Area in the Theban necropolis (25o44'N, 32o36'E). The site is named after a modern village and is located between the Asasif in the north and east and Sheikh Abd el-Qurna in the west. The exact meaning of the name  Khokha is unclear, although it has been translated as peach or vault. In Egyptian Arabic , the term is used to describe an opening in a wall, a gate, or a wicket gate, possibly referring to the entrances of the local rock-cut tombs. The private tombs of the Old Kingdom and the First Intermediate Period and several tombs of the XVIII and XIX dynasties were investigated by Egyptian, British, German and Hungarian expeditions.  The unique tomb of the chief steward Amenemhat, also called Surer (TT48), was one of the largest and most important private tombs of the New Kingdom. The inner, rock-cut part of the tomb extends for almost 60 meters into the rock, its four main rooms contain seventy columns and pillars to support the ceiling.
