A great stop along the Luxor-Aswan road. Worthy of a 30-45 minute visit to see the temple. The foreigner ticket prices are higher now at 180 EGP (Nov, 2019). This temple was THE most crowded of all our visits in Egypt due to the unfortunate...More
We arrived at the temple very early morning with horse Kart. There is a very big queue and it needs lot of time to enter. The temple is crowded also. Greek and Roman soldiers cooked food inside making the ceiling blackened by shoot. The sculptures...More
Visited this temple as a solo tourist on my way from Luxor to Aswan. The excursion was organised by Aladin Tours in Luxor. My guide, Mohamed Soliman was very informed about this site, drawing my attention to the depiction of the conflict between Horus and...More
Well reconstructed and preserved. Easy to walk around and lots of carvings to see. This was supposed to be site of a battle between Horus and Seth. Best with a guide or guide book to relate the background stories as well. The buildings are impressive...More
We took a Movenpick cruise down the Nile and stopped at this temple. It is mind blowingly amazing, you must visit. If you are curious about the process of getting there, what it looks like, how long you need, what it costs etc, go to...More

we just went there this morning from our cruise. we were not part of any tour group. as we got off the ship, a swamp of cart drivers came and offered us a round trip for 300 pounds. we refused, but they kept asking as we walked away. eventually we did the walk and jog along a route by Google maps through some small streets and village. however, the end was the back wall to the temple, where we could take good photos of the big ancient gate. there were police posts there. the police told us to turn right and around to get to the entrance. we ended up going two thirds around the temple.
when we got out and thought to take the shorter way (going left) around the temple, the police at the exit said it's dangerous that way and force us to take the same way around. we wondered how dangerous it can be as we already took part of the route, but we obeyed. there were a lot of buggies surrounding us. but we ended up taking a tuktuk. he initially asked for 50 but we stayed firm with 20 and he finally agreed. when we were getting off and gave him 20, he still demanded 50 (these people often do this kind of thing). but we ignored him and walked away.
