A 3,000-year-old temple was found after digging for 4 years and the discoveries are shocking!

Ancient ruins might look useless to us but experts can study a great deal out of it. Isn’t it interesting that most of what we know about the ancient past today, is a result of studying the ruins? Recently, archaeologists unearthed a temple in Egypt which was over 3,000 years old and the information they derived from it is invaluable.

The temple found at Abusir Necropolis in Giza is said to belong to the period when king Ramses II ruled. He was a king of the 19th Egyptian dynasty. The temple ruins are the only evidence found so far which proves that Ramses II ruled over the region.

The discovery was made after four long years of digging by a team of Egyptian and Czech archaeologists. According to the statement released by the Ministry of Antiquities, the archaeological evidence of a temple was found back in 2012 and since then the Czech and Egyptian team has been working tirelessly to excavate it.

The temple is 32 x 51 metres wide. There is a large forecourt that leads to the pillared hall. Half of its walls are painted blue. The court leads to a ramp which is divided into three parallel chambers.

The temple not only disclosed a previously undocumented history of rulers but also gave an insight into the religious practices during Ramses II’s rule. There are relief fragments which depict scenes of the solar gods ‘Amun’, ‘Ra’ and ‘Nekhbet’. It points to the fact that solar worshipping which started with the 5th Egyptian dynasty was practised even in the 19th dynasty.
