If you are around, get out of your car and take a picture. No cost, just simple columns. Doesn’t take more than two minutes to take in the grandeur. Worth the stop

Very windy place. You literally enjoy the concept that it gives and the noice the winds make. These two humungous sculptures sit beautifully in the valley.

No admission is required for this site, so we stopped here before going to Hatshepsut temple. The pillars are enormous and in very good condition.
