Wear sensible shoes, have something to use for shade, take as many pictures as you can and enjoy the mystical atmosphere

Nice little Temple. Not visited by a lot of people therefore it's usually quite. A good place to visit also to have a quite rest in the shade during the tours on the West Bank.

Nursing a broken heart, I found myself one morning deciding to drop in on this little-visited temple of Seti I at Gurna on the West Bank at Luxor. I found I had the place entirely to myself, which suited my mood perfectly. Much of interest...More

Not a high-priority site, but worth a look, if you have a little extra time and haven't gotten "templed out." You might have be the only visitor there. Buy your ticket first, though, at the main ticket booth near the Colossi of Memnon

I spent the money on this (1000 LE, about $60 at current exchange) and just didn't find it worth the money. There are other tombs better to spend a fraction of the money on.
