Not much left to see except some ancient ruins of the temple. Interesting story though about the history of the temple and about people over centuries searching for some hidden treasures inside the temple, while historically it was known that Pharos do not bury their treasures in worshiping temples.

Not much left of this temple. For an Egyptophile like me I found some cool things, so make sure you look under some fallen blocks and you will find inscriptions. The wall has the best outdoor color and inscriptions in Siwa, so take lots of pictures of it.

This is an amazing ancient temple to see if you get the chance. This place is so secluded, it is definitely a treasure to see before it is claimed by the sands of time. And one of those places you can see that almost no one else has ever seen, or heard of!

Without listening to the story of the monument, you will never find it interesting. The monument is located in a small area and has some Hailogriffic writings.

Not worth stopping for, unless you want a picture with a wall I suppose. It is elaborately decorated with ancient temple ritual scene but that's all there is to it.

That was a temple in the past but now only 1 wall remains. You will pass by it anyway so you can take only a look and continue your tour.
