    The valley of the kings is a must see when you're in Egypt and interested in their culture/history. You can visit some of the tombs of the old pharaohs.

    Temple of Hatshepsut

    2 reviews

    One of my favorite sights near Luxor -- partially because it can be reached by a nice hike out of the Valley of the Kings. The architecture here is distinctive / a bit refreshing after visiting the tombs. Unfortunately, doesn't make it onto many day-trip itineraries.

    Medinat Habu

    This memorial temple to Ramses III is in relatively good condition -- with much of the ceiling in some areas still in tact. Gives you a good sense of what the temples must have been like when they were fully operational. Nice colorful calligraphy here. Keep an eye out for the high-quality carvings at the top of the pylons.

    Tomb of Tuthankhamun (KV 62)

    Relatively small but big on nostalgia. The big prize is the gold sarcophagus at the end of the walk.

    Small but attractive complete complex right in the middle of Luxor. Like the first place you'll visit when you arrive. Easy to walk to and attractive at all hours. Be sure to visit in the evening when the lighting adds to the ambience.

    One of the more popular tombs. The paintings here are relatively well-preserved and some of the drawings retain a fair amount of color.

    Nicely decorated workmen's tomb. Provides an interesting contrast to the more lavish tombs found in the Valley of the Kings.

    Unfinished so lacking in some of the detail that you find in some of the other tombs. Relatively short. Missable if you are short on time.
