 Mudbrick Wall Amarna Small Aten Ancient Egyptian Temple desert cliffs cleft with recently re-erected surviving sections of the distinctive columns at one of several temples, in this case the Small Temple of Aten, located to the southern side of the Central City, a huge sprawling complex that was once the short-lived capital built by the heretic Pharaoh Akhenaten. Apart from some mudbrick remains mostly buried under the ever present desert and recent excavations of the temple walls, pylons and courtyards with some limited restoration little is in fact left after systematic dismantling that occurred after the King’s death.

Mudbrick Wall Amarna Small Aten Ancient Egyptian Temple desert cliffs

cleft with recently re-erected surviving sections of the distinctive columns at one of several temples, in this case the Small Temple of Aten, located to the southern side of the Central City, a huge sprawling complex that was once the short-lived capital built by the heretic Pharaoh Akhenaten. Apart from some mudbrick remains mostly buried under the ever present desert and recent excavations of the temple walls, pylons and courtyards with some limited restoration little is in fact left after systematic dismantling that occurred after the King’s death.
