This temple was constructed in the Valley of the Lions by Rameses II (about 1250 BCE) in honour of the gods Amun Ra and Ra Harmakhis. The back of the temple is hollowed out in the Rock.

In the foreground, the king's statue and a "dromos" of sphinxes which have given the place its Arabic name.

Wadi-es-Sebui, Nubia, Egypt (1960)
