Given the many better known sites, this one is often overlooked. However, it is wonderful and well worth your while.

I’ve been heard to say ‘not another ......’ but not so in Egypt. I find each one fascinating. We booked our guide through Discover Egypt and he was witty, enlightening and completely flexible with times etc. Don’t go without a guide.

Impressive temple area, with a large surrounding wall made from mud bricks. Interesting relief style.

Compared to the other magnicent temples to be seen in the area, this one is much less interesting. If you’re pressed for time, give it a miss.

Nice to see in the morning, not over crowded, super good state of conservation. The price is reasonable, students get 50% off.

even big tour bus do not stop here, but there are still quite many people in this temple, also the color on the wall is not as impressive as the pictures you can google, those pictures are photoshopped.

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

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. 🤗
