The temple was built during the 26th Dynasty by Amasis to worship Amun Re and related deities. During one of the great warlord's expeditions to the Western Desert, he passed by a temple in the region, little remains of the original structures.
Alexander made offerings to the Egyptian gods worshipped at this temple to commemorate his passage on his way to Siwa. On one of the walls of the temple, a magnificent depiction of Alexander offering great gifts to the god Amun is preserved.
The temple was discovered by Egyptian archaeologists, but unfortunately it was exposed to many natural factors, which led to the destruction of most of the inscriptions and sculptures. However, the royal cartouche with the name of the Macedonian general has been preserved, and attempts have now been made to restore it, and cracks have been sealed between the stone blocks.
