We had a 15 minute photo stop here. It was interesting to see the statues and the ruins of the temple behind.

Maybe after visiting Karnak and the expanse of Luxor, I was underawed by the Colossi of Memnon. It is a carpark with two amazing statues. Impressive statues yes ... But if time is of the essence I would give it a miss.
