Deir El-Hagar Temple lies about 20 km from Qarat El-Qasr, in El-Dakhla Oasis, in the Western Desert. The temple was dedicated to the Theban triad Amon-Re, Mut and Khonsu, as well as to the god of the oasis, Seth. Built in the beginning of the Roman-Period in the 1st century BC, with sandstone rocks, this small well-preserved temple is the most significant monument of El Dakhla Oasis. The temple was converted centuries later into a Coptic monastery and a tiny altar was discovered inside the holiest of the holy. Sand dunes had covered the whole structure of the monument for centuries. The scenes represent the worshipping of the Theban Triad with ancient Egyptian patterns. Cartouches carrying the names of emperors Nero, Vespasian, Titus and Domitian are found decorating the temple's walls which were found intact. At the site, there is also an old necropolis with tombs from the Sixth Dynasty.
In Al-Qasr, in the city of Mut, the capital of El-Dakhla Oasis, stands the Ethnographic Museum which features various handicrafts of the oasis such as rugs, dresses, baskets, statuettes, and photos. All these various works vividly demonstrate the daily life of the inhabitants of the oasis.
