Site description: 

The temple of Hathor’s earliest rock cut chamber dates to the 12th Dynasty but was enlarged by Hatshepsut and Thutmose III. In the New Kingdom, a shrine of the god of the eastern desert, Sopd, was added. The site became a place of importance on account of the turquoise mines. The site contained thousands of votive offerings.
