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.

Colossi Of Memnon, Luxor Reviews
The Colossi of Memnon are two massive stone statues of the Pharaoh Amenhotep III, who reigned in Egypt during the Dynasty XVIII. For the past 3,400 years, they have stood in the Theban Necropolis, located west of the River Nile from the modern city of Luxor.
Amazing thing to be constructed.. We had hot air balloon trip and it was a beautiful thing to have the opportunity to see them from top..
They were built in the Time of Amenophis during the New kingdom in the pharaonic Time. But when the Greek invased Egypt the called them Memnon. They are the rests of very huge Temple of amenophis lll, they were buika from Quartzit, red sand stone. They are located in the west bank in Luxor. Beside them there are restaurants and toilets. But take care of the seller, they are really cheating People.
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.
Colossi of Memnon when you watch them you feel like how they are great in creating method and also for the propose they created to scare the thiefs from going to stole the royal tombs and the other monuments, they stands in the entrance of the holy valley of ancient Egyptian at the west Bank.
