The Roman Birthhouse.

Be careful… We are standing very close to the edge, and it’s about a thirty foot drop off the roof of this temple. But it’s a great view from up here. Do you see the large building with the columns, thats the Roman Birthhouse, They thought that was where the goddessHathor gave birth to her son. It was the last birthhouse built in Egypt. The ruins in front of it is a birthhouse from the 30th Dynasty it was built about 300 years earlier. You can tell we are not the first people to have enjoyed the view from this roof, do you see the graffiti at our feet, someone was here in 1817.
