On the east cliff, also known as Jebel al-Khubtha, are, one next to the other, a number of impressive monument facades all carved into the cliff. These are collectively known as the Royal Tombs. From north to south these are the Palace tomb, the Corinthian tomb, the Silk tomb, the Urn tomb, the tomb of Unayshu and the tomb of the 17 graves.
