Donate one block for 5 Euros and help us reconstruct the Great Aten Temple!
The ancient city of Tell el-Amarna, located 300km south of Cairo, is under permanent threat from modern building and agricultural activity. In consequence, the Amarna Project is excavating and reconstructing the city's most important ceremonial building: The Great Aten Temple
The modern cemetery encroachment from the north and the reconstructed temple wall.
Alongside our ongoing excavations on behalf of the Amarna Project, we are replacing the stones removed after the abandonment of the city with limestone blocks from the famous Tura quarries
near Cairo, making the building outlines visible.
Visitors at the site, regarding reconstructed buildings, and some ongoing reconstruction work to the south.
A personalised block, ready to become part of the temple reconstruction.
You can help us by donating one or more limestone blocks for 5 Euros
each, which will carry your name or the inscription of your choice.
Thus, you will become a part of the ancient city and help to protect one of the most important buildings of Ancient Egypt.
