Lovely Ptolemaic-era temple that is nearly intact. Rarely visited by tourists it can feels like you are really stepping back in time. Roof access via an atmospheric internal worn staircase. Really excellent reliefs.

A bit off the beaten path, but worth checking out if you have time. It’s a bit newer (Roman times rather than Pharonic) and in excellent condition. The carvings and colors are pristine. It’s extremely small so it doesn’t take long to visit.
