The Nile Valley and Luxor Sights

al-Ashmunayn (Hermopolis)

  • Archaeological Site/Ruins

Updated 12/31/1969

Fodor's Review

The site features a late-Roman basilica, the only surviving large building of its kind in Egypt, as well as a giant statue (one of a pair) of the god Thoth in the guise of a baboon. A large New Kingdom temple to Thoth, god of Ashmunayn, used to stand at the site but is pretty much invisible today.
