Colossi Of Memnon - Review

You know you’re in the West Bank area of Luxor when two statues, 60 ft high greet you! These two statues, or  the Colossi of Memnon as they’re called, were supposedly standing guard to the temple of Amenhotep III. In fact, it would have been the biggest temple complex had the Nile not washed it all down. Now it stands as a landmark on the side on the road, welcoming you to the West Bank.

Anyone who is familiar with Egypt would definitely know of this place. A popular landmark for visitors, the Colossi of Memnon are two manganous statues bespeaking of its now jaded glory and peerless past. Standing amidst the dry plains of desert, it can be visited anytime without any Colossi of Memnon Tickets or Colossi of Memnon Ticket Prices. Which, once again saves you a lot of effort with no lines to Buy Tickets for Colossi of Memnon or fretting over its Colossi of Memnon Ticket Costs. If you are one of those who are more inclined towards relics, the place with its rich history will charm you to the bits.

  • A quick stop before visiting the other side. Huge colossi, I enjoyed trying to capture their size from different sides. Someone was working on the laps of one of them, it was interesting to see.

  • These two massive statues are a quick visit on the way to Queen hatshepsuts’ temple. Definitely stop by. There is no cost! Both need a lot of restoration work. Venders nearby are annoying.

  • Yes, these statues are in bad condition, and yes, the vendors here are ruthless, and no, there's really nothing else at this site to see or do, but here's the thing: the Ancient Egyptians didn't build these statues for us. They weren't intended to ever be a "tourist attraction". They likely represent the pharaoh Amenhotep III, and seeing as how these sixty-foot-tall statues are some thirty-four centuries old, it's impressive that the Colossi of Memnon are even here at all! My recommendation? Ask your driver to slow down as you pass by, so you can get a decent photo from the road. They're on the way to (or from) the Valley of the Kings, and not necessarily worth a special trip, but definitely worth seeing if you're in the area.

  • If you are in Egypt you must see them. Amazing sculptures! Nothing more to say.

  • It's an amazing place you don't need to buy tickets to visit it because it's on the road and its beside Habo city i hope every one visit it .
