The Tomb of Rites is the level above the Pyramid of Umas. You’ll need to head through the Tomb of Sacrifice and the Tomb of Offerings for the Tomb Keys that you’ll use in the Ceremonial Chamber above.

Dropping down the pits in the southwest and southeast of this level will take you to previously unexplored areas of the Pyramid of Umas.
