The Temple of Sarabit El-Khadim is located on a small plateau north El-Tur, in South Sinai. The name ‘Sarabit’ is driven from the Bedouin word ‘Sarbot’ (“erected pillar” in Arabic). The word ‘El-Khadim’ means “servant”. The remains of the Temple of Sarabit El Khadim are the only considerable vestiges of the Pharaonic buildings in Sinai. It includes names of people other than the royalty or gods. For this reason, it is known as “the people’s place” because inscribed on its walls are the names of 387 leaders of mining expeditions. Built over a 735m-high peak, the temple comprises open courts and sanctuaries dedicated to the protector goddess Hathor, the goddess of copper and turquoise miners to whom the temple was dedicated. The temple’s site is rich with stelae of various Pharaohs that flank the way to an underground chapel of Hathor. The temple has many remains dating back to the Middle Kingdom, with scenes of worshipping Hathor and the deified kings. Hatshepsut and Thutmosis III also made additions to the temple. Spending the night at the foot of the plateau and hiking at dawn is the best option for tourists to enjoy the spectacular scenery.
