Ramesseum Or Mortuary Temple Of Ramses I I, Luxor Reviews

  • For great stature of a pharaoh like Ramesses II the Great, his mortuary temple seemed rather deserted and devoid of tourists, touts and 'bazaar'. We were the only tourists strolling the temple compound in a sunny, winter afternoon.

  • Home of the largest statue of ancient Egypt, the one that inspired the poem "Ozymandias", this beautiful temple is awe inspiring and surely worth visiting.

  • Nice place to visit,to learn more about the great pharaoh Ramses the second.

  • Good place to visit, they are working in restauration, not expensive at all, nobody was hassle with us and in Egypt that is a breaking new

  • Go and see. Worth it.
