Eventually (see my photos of Sedeinga and Jebel Dosha) I got to the Soleb temple. Certainly it looked more impressive than Sedeinga.
The Soleb Temple was commissioned by the same pharaoh, Amenhotep III. And this one was dedicated to the pharaoh himself (worshiped as god Amun-Re).
The so-called Prudhoe lions originated from Soleb.

"With the measure you use, you will be measured"
Almost perfect. It would be perfect if the top of the closer wall of the temple were not cut-off or if it were cropped a little further down. That way, it would be obvious that the top of the temple is not meant to be included. As it is, it looks like an oversight.
