The ruins of the Temple of Abu Sir (Abusir), known as the Temple of Taposiris Magna, are located in the district of Abu Sir, around 50 km west to the city of Alexandria. It was built during the Ptolemaic Period and was dedicated to god Osiris. The actual remains include the outer walls and the pylons. Nearby the temple, there are the remains of the animal necropolis, public baths built by the emperor Justinian, quays, a bridge, a tower built by Ptolemy Philadelophos, and a Christian church— evidence that the temple was used as a church in later centuries. The tower was an exact scale replica of the destroyed Alexandrine Pharos Lighthouse. Interestingly, a female skull was found during a radar survey of the temple.
