Sitting in a quiet village at the foot of the mountains of Thebes, Medinat Habu is a good place to get away from the crowds at the Luxor Temple or Karnak, but still enjoy a wonderful archaeological site. In later years, Medinat Habu served as more than a temple. Thebes' citizens used the walled enclosure of Medinat Habu as a refuge from invaders, and later it was (sadly) a rock quarry.
I thought Medinat Habu was an excellent choice for the last temple complex to visit on our Silver Whisper cruise ship excursion to Luxor.
