On our drive out to the Valley of the Kings we stopped at these monumental statues. The statues are of Amenhotep III, one of the greatest and wealthiest of the 18th dynasty kings. Wonderful sight!

This site is easy to view and take photos. It's on the way to Valley of Kings and Queens so very easy access, there is work going on there now and you might be Lucy enough to view workers escavating artifacts from the site. Didn't care much for a couple of pushy vendors there trying to get tourist to buy... More

Most tours to the valley of the Kings will stop here. There is so much to see in Luxor and it is not worth taking a trip to see just this. However well worth a stop to see on the way to another attraction.

I'm going to repeat what other reviewers have said and that this place is good for a quick photo stop. The statues are very impressive but thats all there is here. Street vendors a plenty though. Always after your money.

Our tour bus made a quick stop to show us 2 Big Statues of a Pharaoh in the middle of an almost barren field. The statues were not in good shape. There were vendors at the site and they try to sell you stuff the minute you walk off the bus. We were there for about 15 minutes and left... More

Nobody comes here except as a quick stop. Two big statues and that's all. There are big statues everywhere in Egypt.

Even if just for a quick photo it is great to be as to be up close and personal with all of this history. Not a destination in it self a nice stop nonetheless worthwhile
