This is an amazing historical site to visit. Great for pictures. There is a little cafe outside for drinks, ice cream, and tourist gifts. Be prepared to pay to use the tiolet.

This site doesn't add too much to what you will already see at the Temples of Karnak and Luxor. It gets hot here and there is little shade on the site. Interesting columns with Hathor's face at the capitals. Nice statue of Horus as you climb the stairs.

from a distance it looks like a new build but is over 2000 years old. Still being restored but more than enough to marvel over. Good time to visit due to low number of tourists

Another interesting place to visit while in Luxor. The carvings on the walls are wonderful and were made better by the colours. The Temple looks beautiful. We enjoyed our visit here.
