Wadi El Seboua

Details :

The name is referring to the avenue of sphinxes that leads up to this temple, which was built during the reign of Ramesses II. The affect of its unkempt appearance and remote location is to give visitors the feeling that they are themselves discovering this temple for the first time.The temple is partially constructed out of stone blocks, but the inner sanctuary is actually carved into the bedrock. Originally, the temple offered three pylons, but only two of them survive.This site is notable because of the huge and well-preserved pylon that remains here. You can climb on top of the pylon to enjoy impressive views of the surrounding landscape with the desert in one direction and the lake in the other.
