#Tuthmosis III laid the foundations of the Temple in the #18thDynasty, but #Ptolemaic and #RomanEmperors completed it between 40 to 250 A.D., and their names are recorded all over the temple walls. 
The remains of the Temple contain a hall of columns with 24 pillars beautifully decorated with #lotus and #palm capitals. The walls are covered with 4 rows of reliefs, showing Ptolemaic and Roman Emperors dressed in Pharaoh costumes, sacrificing to the God of the Temple.
