are two important features that you will come upon
as you make your way to the entrance of the first
pylon. The first, is a stone wall and embankment
which is believed to have held back the waters of
the Nile. This new excavation has uncovered
evidence that the Nile once ran right along side
this pylon. This area is known as the Quay.
Pictured on the right the Quay was discovered by
accident during construction of a plaza between the
temple and the visitors center 2008-2009 AD.
