Owner description: This magnificent mortuary temple was built on the site of Seti I’s ruined temple and was described as the “tomb of Ozymandia,” which later inspired a poetic verse by Percy Bysshe Shelley.

If it meant that you'd miss Deir al Medina or Medinet Habu, don't do it as the aforementioned are much better sites. If you want to see anything significant go for it as it's not a total waste of time, but in comparison to some of the other things nearby it's a lesser site.

Dont miss this, no-one else was visiting when we were here. The temple is huge. To see the size of Ramesses head is worth the fee alone. 10/10
