Soleb is an ancient town full of Tombs and Pyramids and home to the temple of Soleb, the best preserved temple left in Sudan. Here on the west bank of the Nile you will not find any security or tourist crowds like up north in Egypt. You can walk around the Pyramids and Tombs freely, without a person in sight. This really does allow you to take your self back in time.
Soleb was visited by child-king Tutankhamun were he inscribed his name on one of the prudhoe lions that once guarded the entrance to the temple. This Lion can be found in the London Museum.
The temple was rediscovered in 1844 by the archaeologist Karl Richard Lepsius of Germany. His name can be found chiselled inside the temple and head height, which is were the sand level was when he made the discovery.
