This place is a turning point in history where Alexander officially named the son of Amun Zeus and considered to be a God not only human.

This temple is in a fair bit of ruin as the walls appear to be quite beaten by the weather. Alexander the Great was rumoured to have built it. There is a nice panaromic view of Siwa and the surrounding lakes from the highest point of this temple.

Unlike the temple of Umm Ubayad close by, this temple is still standing and you can walk about the passageways and reach the sanctum. You get a good feel of what the temple was like in its days of glory, and the surroundings being still relatively uncrowded (unlike Luxor or Cairo attractions, or even the Shali fortress) the place retains...

Not too much remains from the temple but it is very important place in the Alexander's history. It's better to know the story before going or if you have guide you will hear from him. Also the people in the past used to live in a city around the temple so you will find many of their houses but almost... More

The temple is not as exotic as other major monuments in Egypt, but may be more important than most. The ancient people of Siwa were called Ammonians. They are discussed... More

The home of the Ancient Oracle of Amun and where Alexander the Great traveled to find out his fate. I read in an earlier review that a 'ruin is a ruin, is a ruin', which made me laugh, and reminded me of the USA Basketball team on a trip to China and taken to the Great Wall. They refused to...
