The Temple of Soleb is probably the best-preserved Egyptian temple on the Nubian Nile. Soleb was built by Amenhotep III in the 14th century BC and was dedicated to Amun. The temple layout is very similar to the one in Luxor, also built by Amenhotep. The two red granite lions now in the British Museum that came from the temple to Amun at Jebel Barkal were once at Soleb.
