The remains of a 3,000 year old temple dating from the reign of ancient Egyptian pharaoh Rameses II have been unearthed in the excavations in Upper Egypt’s Ehnasia archaeological area.
‘Inside the remains of this temple, excavators uncovered ten cartouches of Ramesses II and beneath them a relief saying that the ruler had built this temple for himself in Ehnasia,’ the Adnkronos Culture And Media quoted
Sabri Abdel Aziz of Egypt’s Supreme Archaeology as saying.
A collection of terracotta statues depicting Isis, Aphrodite and Horus were found inside along with pots and clay lamps, he said.
The team of archaeologists will continue excavation of the temple during the next archaeological season, Aziz added.
