“Truly amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

This is a really haunting place. One of my favourites in the valleys. Its slightly off the beaten tourist track but worth it.

“Impressive temple that is different from those you'll find in the valley of the kings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

the mortuary temple of Ramses III, also a huge structure with many different chambers and intricate carvings of the gods. Similar in style to Karnak temple but not as expansive, this one is quite distinct from others you'll see West Bank

“My favourite temple in Luxor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

Miss this temple at your peril.
Habu can't match the size and scale of Karnak or Luxor temples, but what it lacks in size is made up for in the quality of the preserved paint work and carvings.
This is a highlight of visiting the west bank

We visited this temple a couple of times and so glad we did. One of the best we have seen and the colours are very good. Don't miss a visit to this one.

“Well worth seeing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

Hidden gem, well worth visiting in preference to Hatshepsut if you have a limited amount of time since it is far better frankly.
