Temple of Madinet Maadi

The Middle Kingdom temple at the site was dedicated to Isis of Hermonthis, Sobek and his wife, goddess Renenutet, by Amenemhet III. Later within the Greek Period, some additions were annexed to the temple. In the first remaining courtyard, there are hymns to goddess Isis of Narmouthis. In this courtyard, multiple objects belonging to the era were discovered and they are now exhibited in the Greco-Roman Museum in Alexandria. The entrance of the Middle Kingdom part is flanked by sphinx road and some Greek construction. Here, there are scenes which picture the Ptolemaic Kings worshipping and making offerings. Also engraved is a relief of goddess Hermonthis suckling her son. The following two intact dark sandstone rooms belong to the Middle Kingdom. On the rooms’ walls are depicted scenes of Amenemhet III and Amenemhet IV making offerings to Sobek and Renenutet. In other depictions, the purification of the King undertook by Sobek and Anubis is shown. In the area, there is a second temple that belongs to the Ptolemaic Era. It comprises two courtyards added by Ptolemy IX Soter II, a central chapel, an altar, in addition to smaller rooms. The sphinx road that leads to the Middle Kingdom temple also belongs to this temple.
