about Temple of Taffeh
The Temple of Taffeh, was ordered to be built by Roman Emperor Augustus in Egypt, after his defeat of Cleopatra and Marc Antony. It was built between AD 1 and AD 14.
Due to the construction of the Aswan Dam many ancient sites in the area had to be moved and several were gifted by the Egyptian government to other nations.
Today the Temple of Taffeh can be found in the Dutch National Museum of Antiquities.
