OK, my visit here was in 2012, but this is another overlooked gem. You can tell the decoration done under Seti, because it is raised relief, while that finished under his son Ramesses II is sunk relief. Seti went for quality in his monuments, while Ramesses went for size. Smaller than Medinet Habu, and you may have it all to... More

Not he most well know temple on the west bank but certainly worth a visit if time allows. It is an intimate temple with lovely bas-reliefs

Go and see this lovely new Kingdom temple, often missed by tours! Good reliefs and pretty bunched papyrus columns.

Worth the trip to Abydos from Luxor just to see this temple. Ramses 2 tried to overprint his images on his Father Set1's temple, but the signs of his father are there if you look for them.

The northernmost Temple of Millions of Years on the West Bank at Luxor is that of Seti I. Just down before you turn up to Deir el-Bahri, this small temple is truly amazing and when i visited in September 2014 was very, very quiet. You have to buy your ticket at the small office just after the Colossi of Memnon... More

After 4 trips to Luxor in 2 years we were looking for something we had not seen. Previous to the flooding it may have been splendid but not worth going out of the way to see. Combine it with Nobles & Mendit Habu to make the trip worth while

Loved this Temple. There is so much to se both all around and up on the ceilings. Be careful not to miss this. The whole area and Temple has a feel of serenity to it. So much to see.

Why more people don't visit this temple is beyond me, it really is beautiful. Entry is 40LE around £4 and there is never anyone here apart form the guardians who are lovely and insisted on making me tea. You seem to get this at the less visited temples, even when you point out you have no money, they are just... More

Another one for the enthusiasts, some fantastic reliefs on the walls, an impressive courtyard with its square columns.

Amazing reliefs - the best in the whole Egypt, the only king list preserved in situ, some of the original roof preserved.
