Habu is the the best of all the temples in Luxor with regards to completeness, preservation and continuing care. Its also not so busy compared to Luxor and Karnak temple. This temple makes you feel that you could actually walk back in time and feel like you are there. There are still areas where there is vivid paint work too... More

This temple is amazing....you can see the colors they used in that time. It built by Ramseslll. The temple is small so you will not walk a lot

Still plenty of paint and grandeur to amaze in the Mortuary Temple of Ramesses III. Contains the 18th Dynasty temple of Hatshepsut and Thutmose III visited in the Opet festival (currently not open).

I was fascinated how the colours on the rocks lasted for 7000 years so far. Great architecture and engineering.

The site is in the middle of town, the entrance looks like one of ordinaly temples but something special. Walk to the furtherest part to see and feel, I think it's one of the most powerful temple in Luxor along with Luxor Temple.

One of my favourite temples in Luxor! The decorations are so well preserved! And the colours, colours! Don't miss the famous relief of the king smiting the enemies of Egypt depicted on the first Pylon (although, I must say it is incredibly difficult to miss!)

Ramses 111, concretes they are gods who lived in the heavens and earth. Only Cleopatra can prove this as this temple is colourful, awesome and a place proving the heavens and earth were one.

Many leave this temple out or rush through it at the end of their trip, but I would highly recommend leaving an afternoon to explore - it is stunning!
