A couple of mostly broken statues in a field. That's all there is. With so much to see and do in Egypt, I don't know why anyone would stop here.

This is not as well preserved as some if the other statues that have been found but still worth a visit

Impressive statues and a good beginning to arriving at The Valley of the Kings. Its a shame they haven't been preserved better. I wouldn't spend much time here.

Unfortunately the statues are ravaged by time and man, and stand in front of the rubble that was once a great temple, but still the statues cannot fail to inspire.

Lovely views from here and to see how beautiful this place is. The two massive statues are worth a visit

This is a good photo stop. The scale of the statues will hit you, but some of the detail has been lost due to weathering and time itself. Still worth a quick stop on route to the Valley of the kings and queens.

The Colossi of Memnon are in bad repair and in need of additional work and excavation to make the site even better. Still this site near the Valley of the Kings is amazing.

Not much to do and see here, except for the two statues. So this will be a quick stopover for a photo shoot and a little look around will do. The statues are quite damaged. There will be many vendors trying to sell you postcards,...More

If you are on a tour of the Valley of the Kings, you will probably make a stop here, for a few photos. Cool historical facts that the statues!
