The artist who decorated this special tumb was indeed a cut above or besides his contemporary counterparts! the paintings are very stylized, much different from the rest of the valley tumbs

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.

Really beautiful Temple as all the building projects of Seti I are. Exquisite decorations and superb reliefs. Quiet and calm place, as it was meant. Difficult to understand why tourist buses just drive past, but in a way it is good for Temple with a only few interested visitors a day.

On the day we visited we arrived at about 2pm & we were the 1st tourists all day. Well worth the visit a special mention to the guardian who gave us a tour he speaks good English & reads hieroglyphics. Well worth a good tip.

Easy to find, easy parking, few tourists. Some good and unique reliefs. Attached palace and granary remains. Good if you know a bit of Egyptology and/or want a quiet monument to explore or contemplate. Not on usual tourist route so no big coach loads of the ignorant.

This was my favorite temple on the West Bank. It is not on most tours so there were very few people. The wall decorations were excellent. A very nice Temple Guardian gave me a nice explanation of the temple. I know he did it for money but this man was knowledgeable. He claimed to have worked at the temple for... More

This is worth a visit not a lot of people are go here they think the only place is the valley of the kings, .Not so give it a try its worth the £3 pound to get in.

This temple was recommended to me by a friend who said it was her favourite temple, it is smaller and not as intact as other temples you will visit. There are some great scenes on the walls but I would rather go to Medinat Habu.
