The Great Temple of Thoth is completely destroyed as it was used during centuries as a quarry for later buildings. From the Middle kingdom, one can still behold the remains of the monumental gateway that once formed part of the façade of the temple. The actual considerable remains of the temple date back to the Eighteenth and the Nineteenth Dynasties. In the remains of the Pylon of Horemheb and Ramses II, Talatat Blocks, extracted from the buildings of Akhetaten, were found. While the rest of the temple's construction dates back to the reign of Nectanebo I of the Thirtieth Dynasty, the mud-brick walls and the gateway date back to the reign of this king. Though other additions were annexed to the temple by Alexander the Great and Ptolemy I, they have now disappeared since their blocks were used in the building of a sugar factory in 1826. In the site stand other minor constructions dating back to both Ramses II and Emperor Domitian.
