necropolis of Dra' Abu el-Naga' is located on the West Bank of the Nile at Thebes, Egypt, just by the entrance of the dry bay that leads up to Deir el-Bahri, and north of the necropolis of el-Assasif.
It was probably used as a royal Necropolis for the kings of the
Seventeenth Dynasty, and contains the possible tomb of Amenhotep I, Tomb ANB.
It was also used as a cemetery for officials of the
New Kingdom administration in Thebes.
Coptic times, a monastery, Deir el-Bachit was built on the hilltop above the pharaonic cemetery. [1 ]
