An Upper Egyptian site dominated by a large, well-preserved temple dedicated to the hawk-god Horus. It was constructed under Ptolemaic kings between 237-57 BC and is the most complete surviving example of an ancient Egyptian temple. To its west are the tombs of the Old and Middle Kingdom and the tell of the ancient town. The site was occupied continuously from at least the Old Kingdom till Greco-Roman times.
