- ESNA -
The Temple of Khnum
The city of Esna is located on the west bank of the Nile in 54 km to the south from Luxor and 49 kilometers to the north-west from Edfu. Temple of Khnum, the God-Creator, is located at the very center of the city, 10 meters below the ground level.
Let's go around the building and look at it's details.
There is only one wall, which remained from the more ancient building, which ever existed here, before the Temple of Khnum was built on it's ruins. This wall has its own foundation, which does not fit with the Temple foundation. It is possible to assume, that the hall with colonnade was attached to a certain ancient construction.
