We visited before all the crowds and the area was almost empty. Great atmosphere allowing to take it all in.

It is kinda sad that such a beautiful temple is so overwhelmed by the rest of Luxor's West Bank... Anywhere else and this would be a top attraction. This was our last stop in the West Bank- we brought some snacks and had a late lunch here. The grounds are quiet and airy- actually trees on the grounds.

This was included in the Luxor Premium Pass, so we walked right through. Our tour guide agreed that it was worth seeing and we are happy that we added it as a bonus to the end of our tour!

Nice temple with a good decoration. Very few people stop here, although it is almost right on the way to the Valley of the Kings. You can rest in the shade under the palm trees. The ticket is also cheaper than other temples.

It's easy to see the difference between good quality work done by Seti I and the lower quality sunken carvings done by his son after Seti's death. Not easy to leave the place if transport is not already agreed on before-hand.

Tickets to enter are not at this site. They, along with any other less popular places are sold in a central ticket office in the west bank village. Its a small shabby building, good we had a local driver who knew we wanted the smaller sites on our second day so stopped there for all tickets.
There is a wall enclosing an enormous area. Within this are only the bottom of walls of what would have been a large complex of buildings. What remains is one large building extensively decorated with the usual carvings. A pleasant area to stroll around at your own pace. There were four people there including us two, completely overlooked by the rushing tour groups.

We were lucky enough to spend 2 days going to the north of Luxor to visit Temples that many tourists don't see, this was one of them. It was almost deserted when we got there which made it even more special. It is one of the most unique and complete temples in Egypt. It is dedicated to all the major Gods and this temple was a return to the old ways.
We were told the reliefs are the finest of the Old Kingdom. My favourite part was a hallway on the left known as the Galley of the Kings where on one side is a large relief of Seti showing his son Ramses ll the walls that are covered with the cartouches of all the Pharaohs, this is a long hallway and both sides are covered. A very special place.

I,ve wanted to visit this temple for a while.It,s a shame it is so rarely visited-on my visit there was only 1other tourist.Admitted,it doesn't,t have the wow factor of Karnak or Luxor Temple,but it is worth a trip.Much of the facade is there and it was obviously at some time quite a place.Behind the frontage,much of the rear building has been destroyed by flooding but it is a quiet,peaceful place and great to wander round.
