A must have for those who want to make themselves a clear idea about the dynamics, the philosphy, the ideas that stand behind the construction of the temples during the ancient Egypt times.

Generally, the problem with Egyptology for the starter is that there is little about the Temples that you can visit. There is a great deal about the pyramids, Valley of the Kings and Philae, but little about the purpose and reason for their existence.

Here in one boomis all the known temples, there origins and development.One of the key points about any Egyptian temple: tye were livinbg organisms, forever changing and deverlping, yet the same.

They all have the same items, and usually in the samer place. Here you will find out why tere is a Birth Room, but no one was ever born in the Temple. Where the last hieorglyohic inscription was made.

Well worth the buy, get it if your going to Egypt and want to know more about what you are seeing then is easily found in the average guide.

This book follows the excellent previous titles in the series, well laid out and easy to read. A most valuable reference tool that fills the gap in the market. It gives an excellent insight into the progression of Egyptian buildings over the ceturies. References to interesting facts of the alinments of the temples and how they have changed with the specific movement of steller bodies such as Sirius and the Sun. As I said earlier a must have book, well worth twice the selling price. Richie Wells

I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in Ancient Egyptian history or who is studying the subject. It contains an excellent and detailed overview of temples throughout Egypt together with informative pictures to accompany the written descriptions.

A valuable addition to the library in that it included detailed plans of the temples for comparison and an understanding of the dynamics of temple building and usage throughout the ages. All the information is there without the need to be bogged down with detail. Beautifully illustrated with detailed ground plans of the temples.

This book is just great. Beautifully illustrated and everything in it is well documented and explained . Also easy to navigate and find a particular item. Would highly recommend it not just for academic reasons, but also for people who are interested in ancient Egypt generally and temples in particular.

Unfortunately the plan of the preformal temple of Medamud is distorted and wrongly orientated. No doubt due to the publisher rather than the author but still a very useful reference book but for an accurate plan of Medamud see Kemp.

A very informative guide, gives good descriptions for some of the lesser known temples. I am hoping to use this when I return in the spring to chose alternative sites to the main ones at Karnak and Luxor
