Approached by an avenue of sphinxes, the Wadi es-Sebua temple was built during the reign of Ramesses II (r. 1279-1213 BCE) and dedicated to Amun-Ra, Ra-Harakhty and the deified pharaoh. The structure was partly rock-cut and partly freestanding. The inner sanctuary was later converted into a Coptic church.
