Ramesseum, Luxor

Luxor, Egypt, Africa + Middle East: The Ramesseum
West Bank
Egypt's insider take:

Most tourists tend to leave the Ramesseum—built by Ramses II as his mortuary temple near the shores of the west bank—until last, and often they have to drop it from their itineraries altogether. As a result, it's a lot less crowded and all the better for it. The fallen Ozymandias colossus of Ramses II was immortalized in Shelley's poem Ozymandias.
