Dedicated to the Lion-god Apedemak, this is one of a number of temples at Naqa and dates from the late first century BC or early first century AD. Depicted on the pylons either side of the entrance are reliefs of King Natakamani and Queen Amanitore. On the side wall of the pylon is a relief of the Lion-god with the body of a snake, whilst the temple side wall shows the royal family in the presence of  Apedemak and other gods.
View from the south.
