A bit torn out. Surrounding is not very impressive. Need more maintenance. But a very significant monument of history.

I never knew there was a Memphis in Egypt, but there is!! It's the oldest capital city, and a cool pit stop if you've got some time. There are giant statues, and the second largest Sphinx!

This red granite statue of Ramesses II is located in the Mit Rahina Museum at Saqqara. I was awe struck as I made my way around this magnificent example of Egyptian monumental sculpture. I kept asking myself, how did they do it? How did they...More

Beautifully maintained statue of Ramses-II in an AC environment. Parts of legs are missing but the details are astounding. A good place to cool down after going through the Memphis Open Air Museum.

Waste of 70lb. Small area, not much to explore just pieces of historical landmark on the ground with a single large one. I’d rather spend my money and time going to the Cairo Museum to see similar things.

We stopped here as part of a day-trip tour out of Cairo. The main attraction is the massive Statue of Ramesses II. The lower portion of the statue is missing, so it is in a lying position rather than standing upright. You can get an...More

This was part of a short visit to Memphis/Sakkara and it is the largest statue of Ramessess II in Egypt. Worth the trip if you have time.

We were lucky to see this magnificent statue, being carefully looked after in this building. Our guide carefully explained its history and significance and pointed out all the tiny details that had special meanings and interpretations from that day.
