One of my favourite temples in Luxor! The decorations are so well preserved! And the colours, colours! Don't miss the famous relief of the king smiting the enemies of Egypt depicted on the first Pylon (although, I must say it is incredibly difficult to miss!)

Ramses 111, concretes they are gods who lived in the heavens and earth. Only Cleopatra can prove this as this temple is colourful, awesome and a place proving the heavens and earth were one.

Many leave this temple out or rush through it at the end of their trip, but I would highly recommend leaving an afternoon to explore - it is stunning!

This was the last place we visited in Luxor and a real highlight. In the late afternoon, we were the only ones there. The reliefs are very deep and impressive, and many columns and the ceiling hold the original colors.

This is one of the few ancient temples that still have the vivid colors on its walls and roofs. It has several halls and its structure is still in shape even after thousands of years.

We were surprised by how few people visited this site. It was lucky for us that so few people were there, but probably not so good for the local economy.

This is my sister's favourite. It is a well preserved temple with plenty of colour still visible. The front area is quite impressive with lots of columns, at the back there are rooms off to the side where locals will point out particular scenes. A short drive down the road took us to a nice little restaurant which as far... More

This is a gem that is well worth a visit. it is right next to a small village and when you enter you don't anticipate the wonders that await. There is colour, there is great architecture, great engravings, and scale. It is vast and in good repair. Go and see for yourself!

This was my favourite site on the West Bank in Luxor. The size of the temple is immense, although from outside it doesn't seem to be so. Even inside, some of the decorations, especially on the roofs, are quite well preserved and are quite beautiful
