The Temple of Amun is one of the oldest temples in the world, it is located 4 kilometers east of the current city of Siwa during the reign of the Thirtieth Dynasty by "Nectanebo II"

Unfortunately, one of the high officials in 1897 blew the temple up to use its stones to build a staircase for the police station and a house. All that remains are ruins of broken stones and inscriptions in the Greek language, mostly written by travelers in ancient times.
