I cycled passed it between Temple of the Oracle of Amun and Cleopatra's pool. Not much to see. No explanation of the site either. I just stopped for a quick picture.

I think you need to be a specialist in history to appreciate this. The temple is in ruins and it's difficult to understant what it was like before. I'd recommend a guide for this tour

Not much left of this temple. For an Egyptophile like me I found some cool things, so make sure you look under some fallen blocks and you will find inscriptions. The wall has the best outdoor color and inscriptions in Siwa, so take lots of...More

Without listening to the story of the monument, you will never find it interesting. The monument is located in a small area and has some Hailogriffic writings.

Not worth stopping for, unless you want a picture with a wall I suppose. It is elaborately decorated with ancient temple ritual scene but that's all there is to it.
