Show Summary Details


This chapter describes in detail the scenery above Ckala'b'sheh. It also discusses the temple of the district, Dendoo'r. On the western side (Ghur'b Dendoo'r) is a temple of small dimensions and of the same age as the main part of the great temple of Ckala'b'sheh; the reign of Augustus. On the opposite side of the river is a small village called Gur'f Hhosey'n (or Jur'f Hhosey'n). Here is a large rock-temple, of the reign of Rameses 2nd. This chapter also describes the temple of Dek'keh, and the remains opposite Dek'keh. Furthermore, it talks about the little temple of Ckoor'tch and the ruins of M'hhar'ruck'ah. Here, very near to the bank of the river, on the western side, is a ruined temple of the least ancient class. Finally, the chapter describes the scenery between M'hhar'ruck'ah and Wa'dee es-Sooboo'.
