The Temple of Qasr Qaroun (Qarun) lies at the far western end of Lake Qaroun. The main temple which was dedicated to Sobek-Ra dates back to the Ptolemaic Period. The temple was restored and its original ceiling is still extant. Decorating the entrance portal is a winged sun disc, a symbol of Horus, the protecting God of the entrances of ancient Egyptian temples. The interior of the temple consists of so many rooms, which made ancient travelers thought it was to be the famous Labyrinth. There is a stairway that leads to the roof that was once supported by four pillars. From atop the roof, one can enjoy a gracefully appealing view of the desert and see the cemetery of the old town as well as two wells. Although one can notice that the temple is almost bare of inscriptions, the walls of the roof have the temple’s only engraving depicting god Sobek, the crocodile god. The smaller mud-brick temple, dedicated to Sobek-Ra, dates back to the Greco-Roman Period.
