Tomb KV3, located in Egypt's Valley of the Kings, was intended for the burial of an unidentified son of Pharaoh Ramesses III in theTwentieth Dynasty(it is similar in design to the tombs of his sons that were built in the nearby Valley of the Queens). However, there is no evidence that the tomb actually contained a royal burial. Bricks and remains of columns indicate that the tomb was used as a Christian chapel during the Byzantine Period.

The tomb is located on the main path, close to the entrance to the Valley.
