Temple of Isis

Highly recommended
This temple is laid out like a true religious city, entirely devoted to the cult of the goddess and giver of life. The interior courtyard, after the first pylon glorifying Ptolemy XII, leads to themammisi , where the birth of Horus was celebrated. After the second pylon, you come to the sanctuary of Isis proper, where you can admire thepronaos ceiling , which bears traces of painted decoration, then thenaos that contained Isis's tomb, with its fine reliefs depicting the king making offerings to Hathor nursing the god as a baby.
