One of the less reviewed temples in Luxor however myself and the group I was travelling with all loved this temple. Many of the hieroglyphics are still in a good condition and some of the colours in the paintings are still visible. It is not too big - easy to walk around and quite spacious.

Enroute to Valley of the Kings at the West Bank and as part of the tour, we were dropped off at Medinet Habu, the mortuary temple of Ramses III. Can't believe I almost skipped it, it has one of the more well-preserved reliefs and decorations that still retain its details and colors, because of its deeper than usual engravings. The... More

Medinet Habu, a mortuary temple of Ramesses III. It is well known for its inscribed reliefs during the reign. The space and scale is impressive and not at all closed off like Karnak.

It seem to be less visited by foreign... More

Well worth the side trip to visit medinat Habu as it is well preserved and they continue to do more work. The locals were very friendly, especially by the standards found at most tourist sites in Luxor and the style of the temple is more similar to Karnak than other sites on the West Bank and much less crowded. It... More

Nice place - big shadows from some great ruins to help with the sun! Grab a guide - so much to see and know. They're not expensive and it really does help to understand what you're looking at. Lovely cafe in front of entrance - ask for the fresh lemonade! Gorgeous!

This is usually not included in the basic tours, but well worth the LE 40 for the preserved colorful paintings on the burial chamber walls.
