Temple of Ramses II

About 24 km west of Marsa Matrouh, you can explore the ruins of the Temple of Ramses II, which dates back to the 26th dynasty (1200 BC). The site is known as Umm Al-Rakhm, it was discovered by the Egyptian archaeologist Labib Habash back in 1942, and houses some admirable hieroglyphic inscriptions referring to the Ancient Egyptian pharaoh.

Near the temple, you’ll also find ruins of the pharaoh’s fortress, in particular the remains of the surrounding brick wall which was erected to protect Egypt from the attacks of Libyan tribes.
