Photographer's Note

All that remains of this ancient temple are the stumps and foundation. Egyptian Pharaohs weren't averse to cannibalizing older temples to use as construction material for their own glorious temples, or destroying the earlier temples of past Pharaohs who had fallen out of favour. Many Pharaohs built temples here over the centuries. This one is just right of the main hypostyle hall at Karnak. Most of the buildings in Karnak date from the New Kingdom, which was from the 16th to the 11th centuries BC.
