The Temple of Esna is a very important historical building. This temple has a very glorious history. There are many items in the temple. You can see quite a lot of good works of art here. The history is also very long, dating back to a very early time.
[Scenery] The scenery is beautiful
After leaving the Valley of the Kings, we came to the Temple of Esna. The Temple of Esna is a temple dedicated to the god Kunum, which is the god of floods. The Temple of Esna was built in 1500 BC during the Eighteenth Dynasty and was completely rebuilt during the Ptolemy Dynasty.
The temple in the destination is very dilapidated, the face of the sculpture is extensively damaged, and the murals on the outer wall have lost all their colors under the wind and sun for more than three thousand years. But the murals in the inner hall can still vaguely see the solemnity and sacredness of the year.
What is still left is the Column Hall. The most worth visiting here are the reliefs and inscriptions on the wall, which record the origin of the world and human life, as well as the activities of the Ptolemaic dynasty. There are also many murals and sculptures about the story of the god Kunum, as well as many pictures depicting the story of the Elefantine Trinity formed by him, his wife and his son.
Because the person who was roasted by the sun was already in a state of semi-heatstroke, I didn't ask the guide carefully about every story, only took these pictures. In fact, even the name of this temple was only recognized after comparing it with the photo.

Transformed into the image of God in my mind

The frescoes of this temple are simply beautiful! Make sure to listen to the guide tell the story inside and recommend it!
In Elephant Island. Some cruise ships will arrange it, some will not. It seems that most of them are self-driving people or chartered people who go there specially. Not bad, a place where rams are worshipped. There was a period when we chartered a boat down the river, but once we needed to find a good companion, we had to have enough people (because the charter money is fixed, the more the number of people, the less the share, the boat can make about 12).
It is a temple dedicated to the god Kunum. Due to the flooding of the Nile River in ancient times, the ground has become higher, and the temple has been buried underground, so you need to walk down the stairs when visiting. There should be reliefs, inscriptions, and murals on the walls of the temple.
