Yes, it deserves a quick stop only for nice photo and typically done as a first stop arriving at Luxor or the last one - leaving it. But what it makes so impressive, is the scale of it and scenery - massive collosus "standing" on empty field. Trully fantasy style movie decoration.

Worth a quick stop as you are on your way in or out of the Valley of the Kings to see the twin statues of Amenhotep III.

Along the road while driving to the Valley of the Kings, there is almost none of the temple remaining other than these two old statues populated by pigeons. Time and earthquakes have aged them.

This is really more of a photo opportunity than anything but definitely still a must do when visiting Luxor. We love our photos here

In comparison to the other landmarks I visit, this was underwhelming. We stopped for a quick visit and photos and that was good enough

Impressive but so many other things more impressive to see on the West bank. Obviously the damage they suffered from earthquakes also factors into play.

Just a quick 5min visit for photos. That's about it. Most tours will make a quick stop here. Good to see either first thing or last.

This Twin statue site is another site to see on the west bank. Recommended to see after the Valley of Kings and the temple of Hatshepsut. Its free entrance site right off the road. It is said that when the wind passes by through the statues they make a humming sound.

No entrance tickets required... off main road for viewing... gigantic semi twin faceless stone statues of Egyptian pharaohs. Located on West Bank side on Nile river. Well worth a visit.
