Not hard to get to and very cheap this temple complex is quite large. But it shows it's wear and tear. You have to understand that the construction in Siwa is with local materials and the main sandstone quarries are full of salt. This makes for poor building material over time.

From Amon worshipers to Alexandre the great and fulfillment of his father's promise to Mohammad Ali pasha the builder of modern Egypt to 1890 governor of siwa. You better search about it cuz i'm enjoying safari right now Through this temple u can see every single part of siwa.

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.
