I loved the fact that there were fewer people compared to Valley of the Kings or Karnak Temple. I visited here before Karnak. I prefer this compared to Karnak. Please be aware of that there are a few people trying to persuade you to take...More

Large mortuary temple with a lot of collossi - the hieroglyphics are also nice to see - make sure you have a cap with you especially if you visit on a hot day!

You should not miss visiting this temple (go with a pre-arranged tour guide to know more about the history and for easy travel). It is slightly away from Luxor town but it is worth visiting this historic place. make sure to carry sufficient water.
