Presentation and Uses of the Tomb

Improvements to aging tomb infrastructure are planned including replacement and upgrading of visitor walkways, protective barriers, lighting, ventilation, and signage.
A visitor carrying capacity will be established and a visitation policy crafted to avoid overcrowding in the tomb with the aim of improving the visitor experience while not endangering the tomb.
Additional use policies will include recommendations for supervision and control over commercial uses of the tomb including filming and photography, as there is potential for damage to the tomb during such activities.
