Built just south of the Third Nile Cataract, by Pharaoh Amenhotep III (18th Dynasty) in honor of the god Amun-Re and to Nebmaatre - which was simply another name for Pharaoh Amenhotep as the lord of Nubia, Soleb (Sulb) temple was over 400 feet long, and the entire enclosure was about 700 by 800 feet. Today foundations and a few columns remain. Two red granite lions from Soleb are now in the British Museum.
