This is a very impressive temple. It does not have nearly as many tourists visit it. I highly recommend visiting this temple. Visiting Valley of the Kings, Temple Hachesput, and this temple make for an unforgettable day on the West Side of Luxor.

Another place you must see, on the edge of the desert this fortress has history written all over the walls of a great temple of Ramses 3 with amazing colors and details of the history of Egypt

Stopped here for a quick tour and again these places are incredible. The fact they keep finding more and more buried artifacts all over is a credit to the Egyptian people for preserving their history

This temple is not so introduced in guide books but actually its a very nice and beautiful temple in west bank of Nile. The color remains fresh and the hieroglyph on wall are well preserved. Highly recommend.

This temple was not very busy with tourists, but had the most preserved color of any of the temples we saw.

Less people since it's on the West Bank. Pretty well maintained and worth visiting. Similar with all the other Egyptian temples, nothing less, nothing more.

Mohammad our Memphis guide was very informative. The details and colours in the art works were much clearer than the Karnak and Luxor temples.

About 10 minutes by a car/taxi. It cost about 20-30 Egyptian pounds. Welcome you at Café & Restaurant Maratonga, in front of the Medinet Habou Temple. 🤗
