The Ramasseum

 

A large collection of Ramasseum photos is available on my own online library Crooktree.com or on Alamy.com to view in larger format and also to purchase.

The Mortuary Temple of Ramses 11 and made famous as one of the fallen statues of the Pharaoh are the inspiration from Shelley's poem Ozymandias. It is usually not included in the usual Nile cruise package but is worth a visit, along with the Medinet Habu, arranged privately should you have a free half day; a few Tombs of the Nobles could be squeezed in as well. Take a taxi from the East Bank and call at the ticket office just past the Colossi of Memnon and purchase your tickets for the sites you wish to visit. Local custodians are only to willing to help and make sure you see all the important parts of the site.
