Only one hall of this temple which is dedicated to the world creator Chnum, is still existing. Each capital of the 6m wide and 11,5m high columns is artistically decorated with flowers, blossoms and animals. When you approach the temple you get the impression that the temple has been build in a large hole in the ground, but quite the opposite is true. Due to the yearly floods and the rebuilding of new houses on top of old ones, the city surrounding the walls of the temple grew to its current height. Only the temple remained on its original level.
