Usually missed out in most tours. Luckily we saw it. Apparently houses one of the earliest known toilets in that Era. Not entirely sure if true. Good art work. Quite a small temple. Possibly due to the damage with time.

This is a great temple to visit on the West Bank. The front entrance is incredibly impressive and the underside of the roofs was really nice. We were the only family visiting when we arrived which was really nice and added to the ambiance.

What a beautiful temple. Nile Holidays took great care to show us the hidden gems of this temple and to answer all our questions. They are a top notch group. Visit Egypt and let Nile Holidays show you this amazing site.

This smaller temple was quite a surprise and is definitely one I will be revisiting. How the colours have survived is mind blowing. This temple is one where you can go up onto the roof, you should definitely add this to your excursion list

There are many temples along the Nile. All have unique points of interest, and this is yet another. The depth of the carving at this temple is suprising
