Ramesseum (Templo Mortuário de Ramsés II)

Aberto diariamente das 6h às 17h
West Bank

The basics

While the Ramesseum is not as well preserved as nearby Medinet Habu (Temple of Ramses III), its huge statues, pylons, columns, and hieroglyphics invite exploring. The Ramesseum is an included stop on some West Bank tours or can be combined with Medinet Habu on a half-day trip. For a more in-depth experience, opt for a tour that focuses on the Ramesseum exclusively, ensuring plenty of time to find the site’s remarkable details.

When to get there

As with other West Bank sites, a morning visit is best for comfortable temperatures. The most popular time to visit Luxor is during the cooler winter months. Brave the hot summer, however, and you might even have the Ramesseum to yourself—the low season means far fewer crowds throughout Luxor.

The Ramesseum in Ozymandias

Once known as the “Tomb of Ozymandias” or the “Memnonium,” the Ramesseum was an inspiration for the poem Ozymandias, by Percy Shelley. Find the Colossus of Ramses II, which appears in the poem, scattered on the ground by the western stairs. “My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings,” wrote Shelley, “Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!”
