Wadi al-Sebua

This temple, originally a few miles east of its present location at New Sebua, was built by Ramesses II. It once had three pylons, the third of which survives. In the court past the first (now non-existent) pylon are six human-headed sphinxes wearing the double crown of upper and lower Egypt. In the second court, falcon-headed sphinxes. Then the third pylon, pictured here, with one of the original four colossi of Ramesses remaining.

The temple, dedicated to Amun-Re, Re-Harakhti, and the deified Ramesses, was named "Temple of Ramesses-Meriamun-in-the-House-of-Amun."
