The temples of Deir el-Medina
The temple complex area of Deir el-Medina is situated at the northern end of the village. It contains the remains of a number of temples dating from the New Kingdom to Ptolemaic times. The most prominent one is the Ptolemaic temple dedicated to goddesses Hathor and Maat.
The building itself is small but is one of the best preserved examples of a temple from that period still standing. It stands within a mud brick enclosure wall. Its compound embraces the site of several New Kingdom temple structures and small chapels erected by Deir el-Medina inhabitants.
