Found this by chance and am so glad I did, it's breathtakingly beautiful and the carvings and depictions are outstanding , even to the sacred pool still being there. Just down from the Rasmussen, it's definitely worth a visit

This is a upper temple, and not one normally visited on tourist routes. Much of the outlying complex is gone, but there is a well preserved central area, with great carved scenes, columns and shrines. The perimeter wall also has a great walk around the top. It is not as impressive as the Ramesseum, but is well worth a visit,... More

It is a little off the course of the regular tour, but if you get a chance you must visit. Sit between the huge columns and imagine how marvelous life was in the ancient world.

If you have some extra time, this is a pleasant oasis but it is relatively sparse and a little off the beaten tourist track.

I love all the temples and Seti I is a must... great for meditation too. Some great little rooms inside if you like quiet time.

A real step back in time, the almost complete Temple of a Million Years is beautiful in many different ways. From the exquisite relief on the walls and ceilings, the colours that are still visible, even better now the accumulation's of 000's of years soot are being removed.

If you want to feel the ancient Egypt, you must visit temples, and I can say that Temple of Seti I is one of the best temple. Great place to visit, a lot of historic and archaeological values are hidden.

This temple opposite the road to Valley of the Kings is well worth a visit. When we were there, we were the only people! Great for photography, and the guardian left us alone....until my husband headed for the Nileometer. At which point the guardian went after him for his own safety! The temple is a nice size, with a lot... More
