Description: Wadi es-Sebua, or Valley of the lions (Arab: واديالسبوع), is the site of two New Kingdom Egyptian temples in Lower Nubia at the edge of Nasser lake, including one impressively large temple spéos of Ramesses II. The first temple was built by Amenhotep III and subsequently restored by Ramesses II. In its first stage, this temple "consisted of a rock-cut sanctuary (about 3 m by 2 m) fronted by a brick-built pylon, a court and a hall, partly painted with wall paintings." The temple was perhaps dedicated to one of the local Nubian forms of Horus, but his representations were altered to Amun at a later point in time. During the Amarna period, images of Amun were attacked and the decorations deteriorated but Ramesses II would later restored it and proceed to extend Amenhotep III's temple by building structures in front of the pylon.
