Most of the walls of the temple are ‎illustrated with scenes of the military campaigns of king Ramses II especially the great ‎battle of Qadesh in which the king defeated the Hittites. In front of the ruins of the first ‎pylon, there once stood a colossal statue of Ramses that was more than 1000 Tons in ‎weight and 18m high, you can still see the remains of it today.‎ After this site you will go visit the last site in our tour where you will see the remains of ‎the ancient Workmen's Village in Deir el-Medina , The village was founded during the ‎reign of King Thutmose I (from the 18th dynasty) and flourished until the end of the ‎‎20th dynasty. It was the home of artists, craftsmen, and workers who built and ‎ornamented the royal tombs in the Valley of the Kings. Above the settlement, hidden ‎within the cliffs, are the workers’ tombs. They include some of the finest decorated ‎private tombs in all of Thebes, like the tombs of Sennedjem, Inherkau, and the Tomb of ‎Peshedu.‎ At the end of the tour, our tour guide will pick you up back to your hotel in Luxor.‎
