If you want to feel the ancient Egypt, you must visit temples, and I can say that Temple of Seti I is one of the best temple. Great place to visit, a lot of historic and archaeological values are hidden.

This temple opposite the road to Valley of the Kings is well worth a visit. When we were there, we were the only people! Great for photography, and the guardian left us alone....until my husband headed for the Nileometer. At which point the guardian went after him for his own safety! The temple is a nice size, with a lot... More

There's so much detail here that you will be amazed at every turn. Don't miss the kartouche wall of the Egyptian pharoes since Mena up to Seti I. Really gives you a perspective of the length of history of ancient Egypt. Also don't miss the details and colors that are well preserved in the wall carvings 3000 years ago. This... More

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
