This is still an active site so you can't get very close to much. The statues are impressive and when you look across the entire site you can site is was pretty sizeable. I could only get as far as looking from the car park...More

This is a quick stop and does not need too much time to visit. The vendors in the parking area are aggressive so be forewarned.

These are two statues of Amenhotep III that were part of the temple. The sculptures were made of hard material, the rest of the temple collapsed. Located on the west bank of the Nile.

Apart from the statues there is not much to see apart from a few shops. Free to enter on the way to the valley of the king so worth a quick stop.

Even though I went there with 1:1 tour guide, she didn't explain that much. I think just a photo was enough. It was a good place to just stop and wondering around.

We stopped at this place for a brief photo stop. There are two mostly damaged gigantic statues of Pharaoh Amenhotep III. They have been standing there in Thebian necropolis for more than 3000 years. The colossi are 60 feet in height and weigh about 720...More

There are two statues all on their own in a scruffy area on the outskirts of Luxor. In the distance, one or two other smaller ones dot the landscape. They are most impressive and very photogenic.

There is just so little left if this place. Two broken statues of Ramses. It is free admission and lots of small vendors trying to sell you something. Ok to skip it.

Nice to see but it really is only a 10 minute stop to take a photo and get hassled by the shop vendors.

You can see them from the road itself, but nothing like going close to them to see and feel the place. It is beautiful and worth visiting, Normally if you go for a guided tour of West Bank this will also be included.
