    The temple was full of reliefs and paintings of the goddess hathor. The temple was in wonderful condition and had many fantastic pillars and reliefs, as well as wonderful ceiling paintings of the goddess mut, and the cycle of the day and zodiac symbols. Thank you to this company to make us enjoy this fantastic day tour.
