El Kanaysis Trip

One of my guests made the trip to El Kanaysis on Friday, this site is on the Edfu to Marsa Alam road and used to be impossible to get to. According to Baedeker it was built by Seti I and dedicated to Amun Re. It was a watering station and there are long inscriptions recording the sinking of the well and the building of the temple. The guest took hundreds of photos of the entire building, these are just some of them. Enjoy!
