A hidden gem

It is a little off the course of the regular tour, but if you get a chance you must visit. Sit between the huge columns and imagine how marvelous life was in the ancient world.

If you have some extra time, this is a pleasant oasis but it is relatively sparse and a little off the beaten tourist track.

I love all the temples and Seti I is a must... great for meditation too. Some great little rooms inside if you like quiet time.

A real step back in time, the almost complete Temple of a Million Years is beautiful in many different ways. From the exquisite relief on the walls and ceilings, the colours that are still visible, even better now the accumulation's of 000's of years soot are being removed.

If you want to feel the ancient Egypt, you must visit temples, and I can say that Temple of Seti I is one of the best temple. Great place to visit, a lot of historic and archaeological values are hidden.

Great for photography, and the guardian left us alone....until my husband headed for the Nileometer. At which point the guardian went after him for his own safety! The temple is a nice size, with a lot... More

There's so much detail here that you will be amazed at every turn. Don't miss the kartouche wall of the Egyptian pharoes since Mena up to Seti I. Really gives you a perspective of the length of history of ancient Egypt. Also don't miss the details and colors that are well preserved in the wall carvings 3000 years ago. This... More
