Our private Egyptologist, Sayed, saved his favorite temple for last. Another wise choice on his part. The temple to Ramsees III was spectacularly full of color considering it is about 3200 years old. The hieroglyphs are cut deeper into the stone than any others we...More

This was a last-minute addition to our itinerary and was a great stop. Well preserved. Small crowd. Well worth the time to explore this temple.

Well preserved historical site. It has a huge hieroglyph depicting military victories. A very safe and clean place. Fantastic colors still on the walls.

Ramses sure liked to build temples. This is a fine example and almost no one was there besides the little group I was traveling wit. Gives you a better chance of up close looks at the carvings and art work. Looks a lot like Edfu...More
