Visited here as part of a Nile cruise. The temple is really amazing - it's not that big and so the tour boats that come mean that it'll often be relatively busy there. Our guide managed to show us all of the major points though - the surgical / medical list is really surprising as it the fact that some... More

An easy stop between Aswan and Luxor. It's nice, but not the best of the temples. The croc museum was nice. We stayed about 1 hr.

I visited at sunset and it truly takes your breath away. There wasn't a lot of tourists there last October when I visited and I must say to stand there alone was an incredible experience. .

Our cruise boat pulled up here for a two hour stop. It is right on the rivers edge and in its time must have been inspiring. Being in the middle of nowhere, it is still impressive but not nearly as overwhelming as Luxor temples. Our guide picked up us on the boat and took us around quickly. there is another... More

The history is amazing as always. But this temple also showcases how advanced ancient Egyptians are. There's a numerical calendar on one of the walls and a surgery in the back. I had no idea ancient Egyptians performed surgeries until visiting this temple. There's a wall at the back detailing the instruments and procedures for the surgery. It really helps... More

Awesome temple and at sunset it is magical! There are hieroglyphs everywhere you look and it looks like the temple hasn't changed in a long time, like it's immune to time.

Our Nile cruise docked here for a few hours and we walked to the temple... 7 min walk from the boat. The temple is dedicated to 2 gods and it showed carvings of the ancient Egyptian calendar, child birth, surgical instruments etc. The well to measure the height of the Nile and the crocodile museum was interesting as well.

Wonderful tour of the temple- magnificent carvings and amazing columns. You can walk right up to and touch them- feeling the power of this place. Restored partially but enough to get an idea of what it would have been like so many many years ago. Visited late in the day when the shadows were long and the temple deserted... it... More

I visited this temple a while now, accessed it by land . its not a temple with enough details to keep you hooked for a an hour or two. highly recommend visiting it as part of a cruise trip.
