From the entrance of the sight the view is spectacular and the inside fulfills all your expectations. Absolutely magnificent in and out. It is a long drive from any where but well worth it.

Consider visiting Seti's main temple in Abydos. Much larger, and very fine reliefs. Abydos is about 160 km away from Luxor.

We were the only ones visiting this temple, so it was nice and quiet, but it is well worth seeing it. It's not too big, so easy to do and has some lovely wall carvings. Well worth visiting.
