Speaking of the most not-to-miss artwork in the Metropolitan Museum is the Temple of Dandal. Because a local water conservancy project in Egypt will cause the area where this temple is located to disappear, the United States will help him take the entire temple The area is protected. The local Egyptian government gave the entire temple to the United States to thank the American government, so here a brick and a stone were moved from Egypt intact and put together. It is very worth watching, although it is not special. It's big, but you still need to line up to see it inside. Let me, a person who has never been to Egypt, can also witness the elegance of Egyptian temples in advance.
The Temple of Dandor comes from Lower Nubia, Dandor, Roman period, about 15 BC, eolian sandstone, 25 meters long from the gate to the temple. It was presented by Egypt to the United States in 1965, awarded to the Metropolitan Museum in 1967, and placed in the Sackler Pavilion in 1978. The Egyptian government donated the Temple of Dando to the United States to commend the United States for its assistance in protecting Nubian historical sites. If this temple is not demolished, it should have been submerged in the Nile water behind the Aswan High Dam. Although the scale of the Dandu Temple is insignificant compared with the magnificent temples of Egypt, it has all the basic components of a temple, a gate, a porch, a sacrificial chamber and a shrine. There is a plant stigma on the porch column, and the relief on the wall depicts the picture of the pharaoh offering sacrifices to the gods.
