The temple is built of sand stone and mud brick and it consists of forty five rooms.
The temple was discovered by Ahmed Fakhry, but unfortunately it was weathered by elements and most of the inscriptions and reliefs have vanished. An attempt has been made at restoration and the cracks between the stone blocks have been crudely filled with mortar.
