The temple is about 30 km (19 miles) southwest of MedinetEl-Fayoum. It was built by Amenemhat
III and is dedicated to several gods. Reliefs show Amenemhat
III with his son Amenemhat
IV presenting offerings to the serpent goddess of harvest,
and God Sobek.
Ptolemies put several additions to the temple, particularly
and lions that line the processional way.
