Jebel Dosha is a sandstone rock located a few miles north of Soleb, northern Sudan. I got here from Sedeinga (see my former photos). There was a narrow path at the foot of the rock on the Nile side.
I spotted a cave and some Egyptian inscriptions on the rock. I did not know much about it then.
When I returned home I did google this document: http://tinyurl.com/cpspklc (Davies: The_Egyptian Inscriptions _at _Jebel _Dosha.pdf)
The cave turned out to be a chapel of Thutmose III and the biggest stela (above the entrance to the cave) was dedicated to Seti I.
Lepsius discovered the site as early as 1844 but even nowadays it is still not visited very often.
