Sun Temples

Sun Temples

Sun Temples were built during the Fifty Dynasty to honour the god Re. They are evidence for the growth in importance of this god. Though all the Sun Temples are in ruins now, enough remains of their decoration to show that the beauty of the natural world was celebrated in these places. Kings who built Sun Temples divided their manpower and resources; consequently, their pyramids are smaller and less solidly built than the Great Pyramids at Giza.
